Antipasto, eaten "before the meal," is far more than a plate of cold cuts. Rather, it's a showcase of the country's wonderful bounty together on one platter--marinated, fresh, and grilled vegetables; assorted cheeses; a variety of olives; plus a choice of fish and meats. To keep this appetizer quick and simple, we've limited the selection here to some of our favorite healthful choices.
1. Combine mayonnaise and pesto in a small serving bowl; stir well. Place bowl on a large platter. Arrange bread and remaining ingredients around bowl on platter. Serve immediately.
