An antipasto platter is ideal for entertaining! Pile a board with Italian antipasti like cheeses, cured meats, olives, marinated vegetables, and more. 


  • 1 recipe Marinated Mozzarella Balls (or purchased)
  • 1 cup Marinated Mushrooms (or purchased)
  • 1 cup mixed olives
  • 2 blocks aged cheese
  • 1 cup jarred marinated artichoke hearts or roasted peppers (or other marinated items from a grocery olive bar or deli counter)
  • 2 types cured meats (prosciutto, salami, chorizo, sopressata, bresaola, etc)
  • 1 handful cherry tomatoes
  • 2 handfuls crackers
  • 1 handful Italian breadsticks
  • Optional other items: focaccia bread slices, roasted nuts, jarred pepperoncini, etc


  1. If using homemade, make the Marinated Mozzarella Balls and/or Marinated Mushrooms.
  2. Prepare the other ingredients as necessary: cut the cheese or meats, and place the olives and nuts in small bowls.
  3. Place the ingredients onto a large board. Place the bowls of items first, then fill in with cheese slices, meats, marinated veggies, crackers and breadsticks. Once the board is mostly complete, tuck in a few sprigs of fresh herbs to complete the tray (like rosemary or thyme sprigs).
  4. Serve immediately, with small plates, forks and toothpicks if desired. The antipasto platter can sit out for up to 2 hours at room temperature. Make the board up to 24 hours in advance, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate: allow to come to room temperature 30 minutes before serving.
