My favorite appetizer when I go to a local Italian spot near me is the beef carpaccio. Thin sliced raw beef, arugula and shaved Asiago. Here I used rare roast beef and made a lemon vinaigrette. My husband loved it! You can serve this as an appetizer for four or have it as a lunch for two. For a vegetarian option see Zucchini Carpaccio.
