- 5 oz Mozzarella balls also known as bocconcini
- 5 oz Pistachios
- 4 oz Piquante peppers or marinated stuffed peppers
- 6 oz Mixed olives
- 4 oz Roast turkey thin slices
- 4 oz Proscuitto rolled into balls
- 4 oz Salami
- 5 oz Cheddar cheese
- 7 oz Brie
- 7 oz Flaxseed crackers or make your own keto crackers
- 4 oz Almonds
- 1/2 cup Blueberries
- 1 cup Strawberries
Choose a board that is not too large so that the ingredients take up most of the space on the board. This helps the platter look abundant and overflowing.
Start by placing 3 small bowls roughly in the center of the board and another bowl in the corner.
Add to the bowls - mozzarella balls (bocconcini), pistachios, stuffed peppers (or other antipasto) and mixed olives
Roll up the turkey slices and make little mounds with the prosciutto and place on opposite sides of the board. Arrange the salami up the other end in neat layers, so the meats are spaced out around the board.
Slice the cheddar and arrange in a layered fashion next to the salami. Add the brie to the opposite end.
The remaining ingredients - almonds, blueberries, crackers and strawberries should be placed on the board in the spaces that are left. Some flax crackers can be placed in a separate bowl too. Scatter the small items like nuts and blueberries in a slightly chaotic style rather than making small precise groups. Some overlap of ingredients here is ok.
- One serving includes 5 flaxseed crackers.
- Make ahead? Make your antipasto platter a few hours ahead of time and cover loosely with cling film until ready to serve. If the weather is warm, keep cheeses in the fridge until closer to serving.
- Taking to a party? Assemble the cheese board on a platter with a raised rim, covered in cling film, for easier transport or assemble when you arrive at the party.
- How to make the platter look sumptuous? The trick to making an antipasto platter look stunning is abundance. The board should appear to be overflowing with a variety of delicious and colorful foods. The first step is to have plenty of food - you don't want too much of the board or platter showing through (and a board that is not too large).
- Arrange everything for contrast, so that the cheeses, for example, are scattered around the platter not all in one area.
- Use little bowls for berries and nuts if you like, to create unique areas.
- Pro styling tip! Introduce a little bit of chaos by scattering a few nuts or berries on the board too. Your platter should be a feast for the eyes as well as your taste-buds.
