    Antipasti Platter

    This magnificent antipasto selection is easy to assemble using the Waitrose range of antipasto, along with other Italian-style ingredients. Serve the items on a platter and provide small plates and cocktail sticks for your guests to help themselves. Then just sit back, relax and enjoy entertaining Italian-style, with a glass of your favourite drink. Try a chilled sparkling wine, such as Prosecco La Marca, a Pinot Grigio or Nastro Azzurro beer.

    Serves: 8


    • 200g Parmesan, cut into small cubes or wedges
    • 4 fresh figs, quartered
    • 2 bunches red and green grapes, cut into small bunches
    • 1 melon, deseeded and sliced into thin wedges
    • 2 x 120g packs Fiorucci Antipasto Cured Meats Selection
    • 160g pack Waitrose Marinated Seafood Salad, drained
    • 200g pack Waitrose Marinated Anchovy Fillets, drained
    • 180g pack Waitrose Marinated and Grilled Artichoke Hearts, drained
    • 200g pack Waitrose Marinated Paterno and Toscanel Olives, drained
    • 200g pack Waitrose Marinated and Grilled Red and Yellow Peppers
    • 235g jar Waitrose Spanish Caperberries, drained


    1. Arrange some ingredients on a large platter in piles or rows. Place other antipasto on shallow bowls sprinkled with roughly-torn, fresh basil leaves and chopped, flat-leaf parsley. Serve with warm Waitrose Ciabatta and Focaccia.
    2. Alternatively, arrange the antipasto on individual plates - ideal for more formal occasions or to accommodate guests with specific dietary requirements. All are suitable for vegetarians, with the obvious exceptions of the anchovies, seafood, and meat selections.

    Cook's tips

    The platter can be prepared a couple of hours ahead of time, then covered and refrigerated. Remember to bring it back to room temperature for 10-15 minutes before serving.

    If you don't use the oil from the packs, cover and refrigerate. It can be used for pan-frying, adding to salad dressings or tossing with pasta (use within 2-3 days of opening).
