If you haven’t noticed we have been on an international kick the last few posts. First, we did the aebleskiver, then the cilantro lime quinoa, now this antipasto! We knew we wanted to do something in the Italian family, so instead of doing a heavy pasta dish, I went with this fresh antipasto.
I decided to do a vegetarian version because those cured meats often have nitrates and other harsh ingredients in them. This antipasto plate is so easy and you won’t miss the meats! The Mario Snack Pack olives make the perfect addition because they are minimally packaged and don’t contain any added oils or water. Plus, they are fresh and delicious.
I know the Oscars are tonight. If you haven’t planned your snack food for the night, give this a try. You probably have everything you need on hand and you’ll feel fancy when you eat it while watching the decadence of Hollywood. That’s definitely my plan. Plus its quick, so you could have to done in time to watch the red carpet with Ryan Seacrest. A bonus, when roasting the peppers, your house will smell amazing. My 4 year old came inside from playing and asked me “what is that delicious smell?” She’s so funny.
Enjoy this quick and fancy appetizer recipe. It’s a clean way to enjoy something you usually feel guilty about.
Local Ingredient: mushrooms from a local mushroom farm.
