Antipasto, which means “before food” in Italian, is a salad-like appetizer consisting of various fresh and pickled vegetables, cheeses, and rolled or sliced meats. For vegetarian antipasto, you can either substitute mock meat products or leave them out altogether.
There is no set recipe for antipasto; choose at least half a dozen ingredients from the following list:
|Directions||Arrange the lettuce on the platter or plates. In the bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar, and herbs. Toss with the vegetables, then place on the arranged lettuce.
Sprinkle the cheeses over the vegetables, then roll the salami and/or pepperoni and place around the outside.
|Notes||This is just a guide; you can also toss the cheese with the vegetables, arrange the sliced peppers along the outside of the platter, sprinkle the olives on top, etc.|
