Expert Tips

Use 1/3 cup white vinegar and 1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon I place of the tarragon vinegar.

Line the platter with frilly leaf lettuce. Roll the salami slices and tuck the rolls under the vegetable mixture to hold their shape.

Crisp breadsticks and crackers are wonderful accompaniments to this antipasto tray.
