Antipasto – A Very Good Appetizer


Antipasto (“Before the meal”) is a very good appetizer for a bigger meal – but it can be very filling on its own. You can add or takeaway foods that you don’t like. Below is my recipe for a good antipasto that uses traditional Italian meats. You can find most of these meats at a nice local deli or even try your supermarket.


1/2 lb sliced Genoa Salami

1/2 lb sliced Prosciutto

1/2 lb pound Sopressata

1 tomato
 (sliced or loosely chopped)

1 large white onion
 (sliced or loosely chopped)
2 roasted red bell peppers (sliced or loosely chopped)

1 Pound sliced or cubed provolone
2 cans black pitted olives
1 small jar of Peperoncino peppers

extra virgin olive oil


Use a long plate, arrange items in the following order:

Salami, ham, provolone, tomato, onion, red peppers and Peperoncino peppers

Put the olives in the center of your salad platter

Lightly salt everything

Drizzle olive oil
 on everything

Let the antipasto sit covered in the refrigerator until ready
 to serve (Sitting helps enhance the flavors)

You don’t want to keep the try out of the refrigerator too long or things can become spoiled and can make you sick (and we don’t want that!)
