Every holiday growing up always began with Antipasto. And I have carried on this tradition.

I serve my antipasto on a buffet table and include a basket of Italian bread and shrimp cocktail (and, of course, wine!)

You can include any type of your favorite deli meats, cheeses, and marinated veggies. This is how I make it..... Bon Appetite
