Antipasto

Neno’s Antipasto

The antipasto served in our house was elaborate (overwhelming) and a treat to the eye as well as the palate. It was artistically arranged by my father, Neno Mazzer. When they saw it laid out on the table, many non-Italian guests assumed that the antipasto was going to be the entire meal. It included celery, olives, cocktail onions, Italian canned tuna, pimientos (all of this and more on a Lazy Susan), pickled mushrooms, prosciutto, salami, mortadella and coppa, bread and breadsticks, and the following concoction thrown together by my father.

1 can sardines in tomato sauce (Goya is fine for this)
1 can Italian tuna
10-12 cocktail onions
1 or 2 diced pickles (combination of sweet, dill and/or kosher)
6-10 green olives with pimentos

Mix together in a bowl. (This went into the middle bowl on the Lazy Susan.)
