Antipasto Tray

Antipasto is cool from start to finish. Every ingredient is refrigerated and the prep is quick and heat-free. I love that it's versatile; I throw in things for the adults like artichoke hearts and marinated mushrooms while kid favorites like baby carrots and hard salami fit right in. The kids enjoy the variety of this and I enjoy that it's one single dish to wash!

I add slices of crusty Italian or French bread. Right now we like New York Style® Panetini® oven-baked Italian toasts. They're super-crunchy and really flavorful.

Take a look at the notes below the recipe for other ideas on ingredient possibilities.

This is a quick and easy meal for even a novice cook to put together and give as a gift.
