“This is one elegant, easy recipe people really seem to like at every party. I found a marinade recipe that wasn’t so heavy on olive oil and modified it to my taste. The kabobs are a snap to assemble. You don’t even need to turn on the oven.” —Kendra Doss, Kansas City, Missouri
Antipasto platters have a lively combination of flavors that tempt the taste buds. This is a real favorite on our buffet table. The large platter of meats, cheese, olives and vegetables disappears quickly. —Weda Mosellie, Phillipsburg, New Jersey
Sauteed vegetables add fresh, robust flavor to these hearty bread slices from Genise Krause of Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin. For a change of pace, use prosciutto or shaved deli ham instead of salami.
GENISE’S TIP: “On extra-busy nights, I sometimes substitute prepared giardiniera for the vegetables to speed things up.”
