Food: A New Take on Antipasto

A while back, a group of us would meet up in North Beach San Francisco and order 2 antipasto Salads, and an extra large pizza to share with some wine and lots of laughter. I don’t know why this recipe reminded me of those days, but it did. I do like the creativity of the […]
