Southern Italian Antipasto
Great finger foods to serve at your next gathering. Everyone loves a good Southern Italian Antipasto platter. You can choose your favorite meats and cheeses, to prepare this platter. I love to use roasted red peppers, burrata and provolone cheeses. Don’t forget some really good crusty Italian bread to serve with my Easy Homemade Vanilla Fig Jam recipe.
1 large ball burrata cheese
4 oz. Provolone cheese, cut into bite-sized pieces
3 oz. hot sopressata, thinly sliced
3 oz. sweet sopressata, thinly sliced
4 fresh figs, quartered
4 oz. fresh ricotta cheese
*3 T. Easy Homemade Vanilla Fig Jam
3 T. walnuts, chopped
1 6-oz. jar roasted red peppers, sliced
1 4-oz. container marinated and seasoned mixed olives
1 8-oz. jar artichoke hearts, drained
1 lbs. red seedless grapes, split into 3 or 4 bunches
Fresh basil and rosemary sprigs, for garnish
Optional: Crusty Italian bread, thinly sliced. Substitute gluten-free bread or crackers, if desired.
- Place the burrata in the center of a serving platter and arrange the Provolone cheese, sopressata, and fresh figs around it.
- Fill a small serving bowl with the ricotta cheese and top with the fig jam and walnuts and place near the burrata arrangement.
- Transfer the roasted red peppers, seasoned olives, and marinated artichoke hearts to individual serving dishes and position near the other items.
- Tuck the grapes, fresh herb sprigs, and crusty bread slices (if using) in around the other ingredients to create a nice display and serve immediately. Enjoy!
