"Simple to prepare & delish! You can alter the ingredients to your liking. I used the leftovers on Day 2, tossing with fresh greens for a quick salad!"

"Loved the concept. Used ths at Christmas as appetizer. I added 1/2 pkg little smokies and 5 oz of 3 different kinds of cheese and large green olives stuffed with akmonds. What a hit. Nothing left. Thank You for the idea!"

"I love antipasto but I would add some prosciutto, hard salami, pancetta, or some ham. Personally, I like this dish without any meat at all. A variety of cheeses like provolone, fresh mozzarella, other fresh cheese like feta, pepperoncini, marinated artichokes, sun dried tomatoes and a wide variety of olives like Greek and green olives like Castelveltrano would be welcome additions. Castelveltrano olives are lower in sodium and have a delicious mild flavor. I have not been able to find them pitted at my store so you may have to pit them.

Also, I use the marinade from the artichokes as a dressing. : )"

"Loved it! Very simple and made a beautiful presentation on our New Years buffet. I think next time I'd rather have tortellini as others suggested and maybe leave out the garbanzo beans."

"Loved how simple this was to prepare ahead of time. It was so colorful for Christmas. It was delicious! The only thing I changed was that I added cubed green pepper."

"Made this the first time for our Christmas dinner. Everyone loved it. Have made it several times since. Including our family reunion this last week. It was gone in no time. I do add 1 package of "fresh" chicken & prosciutto tortellini's that has been cooked, mozzarella pearls and several types of Italian meats. The garbanzo beans, for me, doesn't add anything to it, but it's a good filler. The original recipe is very good, but my additions are what my family feels takes it up a notch."

"I love to add other Italian meats as well. We add several different kinds of salami and prosciutto and ham and roast beef and turkey. We also marinate our mushrooms and artichoke hearts and add several kinds of cheeses. I also make a plate of thinly pounded chicken cutlets. It's always a hit. We have it as a precursor to a dinner of Lasagna and meatballs and braccioles and crusty bread."

"I made this last night for a party and it was a big hit! I used the whole 8 oz package of whole mushrooms cut in half, both green and black olives, the cooked cheese tortellini as someone had suggested, a ball of provolone cubed, and a half stick of pepperoni sliced in thick slices and then in half. Fabulous!"
