This is one of the best recipes I have ever found. People love it (unless they aren't olive fans) and everyone asks for the recipe. It is great to have on hand pull out of the freezer and serve. I highly recommend it! Read More

It will be good to know how to serve this dish after taking it out of the freezer. If it is stored in a large volume should one use it all at one time? Is it possible to store in small portions and take one when needed? Read More

This antipasto reminds me of what my friend's mom made for Christmas when we were kids. This is much easier to make and store-no fussing with canning. Freezes well and makes a great hostess gift for the holidays. Better than store bought. Read More

This is a great recipe. It tastes much like another I used to make that had 32 ingredients and involved canning. This is the third year I've made this to use through the holidays. I freeze in mason jars and take one out when needed. It is great with ritz crackers or sliced baguette. Read More
