Abbondanza Antipasto

Sandra McGrath


What would a holiday meal be without an italian antipasto salad! Again, you could substitute any of the meats for something else or add marinated mushrooms. The italian tradition salad I remember while I was growing up had pickled eggplant strips and anchovies! I sometimes put them in a dish on the side for those who still prefer this but actually I like this without the additions.

How to Make Abbondanza Antipasto


  1. Start with a large platter and wash cut and rinse the lettuce. I like to dry it with a paper towel or use a salad spinner.Start to layer ingredients as shown in the picture, layering olives, dispersed around the plate,tomatoes, artichokes, meat strips and then cheeses. I like to put the pepperoncini on the top as in the picture.Serve with olive oil and vinegar or a good italian dressing.
