    I am expecting friends over the holidays and I initially thought deviating against my norm of doing a fancy fromage and charcuterie platter rather than anti pasti but after seeing this I might just reconsider.

    The web editors need to watch the episode in which Martha makes this antipasto dish. The directions given are sorely lacking and make it nearly impossible to re-create the antipasto dish presented on the tv episode. Further instructions and more tips from the tv spot need to be included in the written/typed recipe directions.
