Antipasto, which means before the meal is a typical first course in Italy and is comprised of an array of fresh deli meats, fresh mozzarella, basil leaves, wine-soaked tomatoes, roasted garlic and artichoke hearts. However, much like any appetizer, this can be prepared to taste. 


  • 4 ounces fresh mozzarella
  • 5 ounces cured salami, sliced
  • 3 basil leaves
  • 1 tomato, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup white wine
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil


  1. Place chopped tomatoes in a shallow bowl. Pour wine over and chill for at least two hours.
  2. Arrange a platter with meat, cheese, basil, tomatoes and olive oil. Serve with fresh, crusty bread or on its own!
