Yep, that’s my family at the holidays right there.

Antipasto is as much about the presentation as it is about the ingredients. Our Italian family always starts each holiday or big family meal with this amazing dish and there are never any leftovers. Many times this appetizer is the most colorful recipe of the day.

The great thing about antipasto (for us busy people) is that you can make it earlier in the day and cut down on the pre-dinner chaos. This can be a great boon for you during busy holiday party or celebratory get-together times. In fact, making this dish ahead of time enables all the flavors to join forces for an explosion of deliciousness in your mouth.

So go ahead and enjoy and perhaps my grandpop’s antipasti will become part of your family’s traditions as well.
