Antipasta Salad (great for a group as well).
- baby spinach, nice cheese: sliced mozzerella, smoked gouda etc..., blue cheese crumbles, sweet italian peppers, kalmata olives, cherry tomatoes, several kinds of good quality salami, cappicola, proschuito (no idea if that is spelled correctly) etc.. all sliced, red wine vinegat, nice olive oil.
Make a layer of spinach on a tray. Cover the spinach with plenty of the meats, followed by the sliced cheeses, followed by the olives, tomatoes, peppers, then throw on some blue cheese crumbles. Put some cracked black pepper on top and then drizzle on some olive oil and vinegar.
This can be made real early but be sure to put the oil and vinegar on at last minute so it does not make things too soggy.
Other things to add if you want are: fresh basil leaves, artichoke hearts, oreagno, pepperocinis ets...
