When it's hot and humid outside we love to have an antipasto platter for dinner with a glass of wine. I made ours with proscuitto mortadella sopressata olives marinated artichoke hearts fresh pearl mozzarella grilled roma tomatoes shards of fresh Grana Padano and my "Roasted Peppers in Oil" (recipe also on this site). Served it with grilled ciabatta. Delizioso! Read More

We LOVE these! The beauty of it is that you can put anything you have and make a great platter. Also you can make this to serve 1 or 101. So simple and a nice light starter. Thanks for sharing.:) Read More
