Antipasto Platter

No real recipes for this dish, just ideas for a large platter with a variety of food. I wanted to keep it low on prep time, since I was making so many other things for Abbie's party. You just need to spend a little bit of time in the gourmet section of your grocery store, and many of these things can be substitued out for others. For example, use Serrano ham instead of the prosciutto with the cantaloupe, or serve slices of goat cheese with the sundried tomatoes.

Antipasto Platter

  • Marinated bocconcini (tiny mozzarella balls) skewered on a toothpick with marinated julienned sundried tomatoes
  • Cantaloupe scooped out with a melon baller or cookie scoop wrapped in slices of prosciutto and skewered on a toothpick
  • Slices of roasted eggplant - make it like this recipe directs
  • Roasted red peppers marinated in balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and salt and pepper
  • Chopped marinated artichoke hearts
  • Chunks of Asiago and Parmesan cheese
  • Marinated assorted olives

Serve with assorted crackers and breadsticks.
