Classic Antipasto

Italian Antipasto recipes

3 slices each of prosciutto, sopressata, and capicola or genoa salami 3 long, pie wedge slices each of hard parmesan cheese and pepper jack cheese or other desired hard cheese 7 pieces boconcini (small fresh mozzarella balls) 6 pieces of roasted red pepper (comes in a jar if you don't know how to fresh-roast) A variety of "fresh" olives (the kind you buy at the deli counter, not in a jar) 1 bulb of fresh roasted garlic, cloves squeezed out and cut in half crosswise 1/2 onion, sliced and sauteed in butter to caramelize The best extra virgin olive oil your money can buy Fresh ground black pepper A round non-metal platter
Arrange the meat slices attractively on the platter; drizzle slightly with olive oil. Next, arrange the hard cheeses on top of the meat in "spoke" fashion (either the points facing inward or outward, your choice). Next, arrange the olives and garlic in between. Next, arrange the fresh mozzarella. Next, arrange the onions and roasted red pepper in the center. Again drizzle with olive oil (less this time, if your roasted red pepper comes in olive oil in a jar). Sprinkle with fresh ground pepper (I do two twists of a pepper mill) and serve immediately. Serves 3 - 4. Enjoy! -Diana
