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
Each year during the winter holiday season, the faculty and staff at my school has a Goodies Day where we bring all manner of tasty things to share with everyone. These marinated bites were gone before the first lunch period!
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.”
