These are so easy, good, inexpensive, made ahead, NOT cooked, and travel great. BBQ's, picnics, dinner parties, pot lucks or just a light side dish with the family. They are so versatile because you can use anything you like. I love cheese tortellini, artichokes, stuffed olives, grape tomatoes and salami. But this is antipasto ... Other great ingredients are; mushrooms, cocktail onions, mozzarella balls (not marinated), sopressata, proscuitto, peppadew peppers are great as well as pepporcinis. Use your imagination. These go fast and are so easy to make.
