There is no real “recipe” for the perfect antipasti, there are just some really good suggestions as to what to use. For this year’s Thanksgiving, my mother will be preparing the antipasti, but this recipe is just a suggestion as to what to include. It is vital that no matter what you put in it, you use high quality ingredients. It is costly, but worth the trip to a high end Italian deli. This recipe is great to bring to a holiday party, but I will be using it as a part of the Teacher. Foodie. Athlete. Does Thanksgiving series.
