Antipasti Platters

By Christina Collins

Ilove foods that encourage social eating. After all, that is what Feast & Merriment is all about!When I have company, no matter if it is one person or a large gathering, I make sure 3 things happen that help guests start relaxing right away.

  • Music is playing in the background
  • The wine is ready to pour
  • A platter of deliciousness is ready to dig into.

If these three things happen, the night (or day) is sure to be off to a really great start!

A good platter features a variety of food groups, a range of colors and textures, and is intended to be shared. It is often served at room temperature and can usually be made in advance, making it just about the perfect dish for entertaining.Pick a variety of items that complement and also contrast each other. Use lots of color and pile things high. There is no limit to your culinary creativity when making a platter!

  • Cheeses
  • Grapes
  • Figs
  • Dried Apricots
  • Olives

  • Cured Meats
  • Smoked Salmon
  • Honey
  • Nuts
  • Bread
  • Crackers

  • Cucumbers
  • Roasted or Fresh Peppers
  • Apple Slices
  • Roasted Garlic

  1. A good veggie dip platter is by far my favorite. Not only is it beautiful to look at, it’s also creative & tasty because she doesn’t serve the typical baby carrots & celery sticks.
