Antipasti

This week I bring you five recipes for a stress-free luncheon or dinner party. Four of these beautiful antipasti can be served at room temperature, which almost eliminates the stress of cooking for friends (or at least it does for me). You can serve this with a lovely cold white wine for an entirely vegetarian feast, or you can grill some tuna or steak if you want to make it a more substantial meal. Your grill will already be fired up to make bruschetta, my favorite food in the world.
