I nicely arrange the various antipasto on a large platter and let guests help themselves. It's a fun and casual meal - especially if you add some wine and Italian-style music - that's easy to prepare, as all items can be bought ready to use in the deli. Below are some suggestions on what to serve. Feel free to add or substitute items. Leftovers from antipasto platter make great pizza toppings.
Arrange ingredients on a platter and serve at room temperature with assorted sliced breads. Drizzle a little extra virgin olive oil over vegetables and sprinkle with chopped parsley or basil before serving, if desired. Include, if you wish, a dish of balsamic vinegar and olive oil for dunking bread or breadsticks in.
*Note: There are few varieties of jarred antipasto (a tomato-based mix of vegetables and sometimes tuna) sold in store. Choose your favourite or ask for recommendations.
