Antipasto with Sun-Dried Tomato Mayonnaise

Prep: 17 minutes; Cook: 5 minutes

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.


8 servings (serving size: 1 baguette slice, 1 half-piece cheese, about 2 1/2 tablespoons tuna, 2 tablespoons pickled vegetables, about 2 olives, 1/4 ounce ham, and 1 tablespoon mayonnaise mixture)
