I really don’t have a recipe for my antipasto platter. Every time I make one it is different. They generally will have some type of cheese, Italian meets, fruits, veggies, breads, and/or olives. Whatever I’m feeling like at that moment. I love to make them! They are pretty, (at least the ones I make are 🙂 ) fun to eat, and yummy! Every special gathering I have ever had growing up has had some type of antipasto platter out before the meal. I make them a little different now then the ones I had growing up. NO anchovies on celery, Yuk Yuk Yuk. Sorry Grandpa!

Here is a picture of the last one I made.

Here are some pictures of how I assembled it.

After I rolled my prosciutto and basil over the mozzarella, I secured the bundle with a toothpick (which also made it easy for everyone to pick up and eat). Then I sprinkled an Italian dressing over the top ( lightly). We make our own with olive oil, vinegar, and seasonings, but a bottled dressing would work fine.

Then I rolled the prosciutto around some cantaloupe as well. My Grandma likes this. It has a sweet and salty taste.

The rest is just placement.   Serve and enjoy!
