Now, if you have been following me for a while, then you know how picky I am about Italian food, and how much we LOVE Delallo Foods. Growing up in New York, we are spoiled with great Italian salumerias and know good quality pasta, cheese and meats. So when I first went to the Delallo Store in Jeanette, Pennsylvania I thought I was in Italian heaven. The great thing is, you can buy most of their stuff online, so you don’t have to travel all the way to Jeanette, PA.

When I came up with this Fuss-Free Dinner Party in a Gift Box I remembered an event my friend Heidi of Foodie Crush hosted, where she threw together a salad platter similar to this that was pure genius. Turns out, her idea came Guiliana who works at Delallo, and always makes entertaining seem so effortless. Just add the greens and veggies, everything else for the platter is in included in the box, plus a package of pasta and a jar of sauce.

Here’s what you will get:

DeLallo Mezzi Rigatoni Pasta 1 lb.
DeLallo Pomodoro Fresco Tomato-Basil Sauce 25.25 oz.
DeLallo Modenacrem Balsamic Glaze 8.5oz

How To Make An Antipasto Salad Platter

You can use any combination of your favorite Antipasto, such as marinated mushrooms, eggplant, etc, your favorite olives (you can use a variety), and your favorite meats and cheese, the possibilities are endless. Once you have all your ingredients, arrange this just before you’re ready to serve, it won’t take long. You can pre-cut everything ahead to save time.

  • Start with a very large platter.
  • Pick up some salad greens, such as baby arugula, and some tomatoes and fresh cucumbers.
  • Arrange the greens in the center of the platter.
  • Cut up the vegetables and cheese, and slice the sopressata.
  • Arrange them around the arugula, keeping them all separate.
  • Open the chickpeas, olives, sundried tomatoes and artichokes and drain, arrange them on the platter.
  • Set out olive oil, balsamic glaze and your favorite dressings.
  • Set out some serving spoons or tongs and let everyone help themselves.
