Simple Italian Antipasto

The men in my family love a great antipasto (what man doesn't love salami and cheese?)  I make a simple one with the right blend of flavors and textures and it's gone in just a few minutes! This easy recipe will have you creating an antipasto as good as any you'd find in good Italian restaurant. Just toss together your favorite meats and cheeses and add some Star Olives in their convenient pouches and you'll have an Antipasto that everyone will enjoy!

Simple Italian Antipasto

1/4 pound sliced ham, cut into 1-inch chunks or pieces
1/4 pound sliced Genoa or other hard salami, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/4 pound fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into 1-inch chunks
1/4 pound Monterrey Jack cheese, cut into 1 inch chunks
1 cup of cherry or grape tomatoes, cut in half


3 cloves garlic, crushed
3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil 
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 tablespoon parsley
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup Star Fine Foods Golden Balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup Star Fine Foods Red Wine Vinegar
1 1/4 cup Star Fine Foods Extra Virgin Olive Oil

In a medium bowl, whisk all above ingredients until well blended. Pour immediately over antipasto salad. Refrigerate and allow the flavors to meld for at least an hour before serving.

Feel free to add:

1 jar Pepperoncini Peppers, drained and chopped
1 jar of Artichoke hearts drained and chopped
1/2 pound of sliced pepperoni
