  1. If I could rate this ten stars I would. Very easy to make. The platter was so pretty that my guests thought it was purchased. I was very proud to serve this dish. Not only was it pretty but heavenly delicious - especially if you like marinated veggies. The marinate was so good, I will use it on other things and possibly as a dressing. This would be very good on carrots and cauliflower. Made exactly as directed. Tip: know that a little salami goes a long way. I bought additional but did not need it.
  2. Perfect! I made the dressing/marinade as written and the veggies taste incredible. I marinated asparagus, cherry tomatoes, sliced red peppers, 1/4 inch sliced cucumber, and mushrooms, overnight. The asparagus was blanched, the others were raw.<br/><br/>I changed up the main ingredients to suit our tastes (I used salami, prosciutto, gruyere, bocconcini and olives. The platter looked and tasted amazing.<br/><br/>Thank you!!<br/><br/>Update: Since my original review I've been asked to make this several times for family functions. This is an amazing dressing and the veggies taste better the longer you leave them. I've marinated them up to 4 days before a party and they remain crisp yet sooooo flavourful! Red wine vinegar is the way to go, it gives the best flavour.
  3. This was easy and added nice flavor to the vegetables for my Italian-dinner appetizer spread. Thanks for sharing!
  4. Super easy to assemble and absolutely delicious! I made this for a potluck at work and it was a hit. Thanks!
  5. Excellent recipe! Excellent quantity for a large crowd! I doubled this for a 20 guest party and all I heard were RAVES! Only used salami in several different flavors for the meat. The marinade will join the ranks of a frequently used recipe & frequently shared! Thanks for sharing this Vicki in CT!
