Classic Italian appetizer recipe

The Italian antipasto is a delicious appetizer that is typically served before a meat-based lunch or dinner at the restaurant. The masters of oil and cold cuts: there are many variations, because each region of Italy has its own specialties. More than a recipe, it is a set of recipes: it is a matter of putting on the table your preferred cold cuts and accompanying them with preserved vegetables, which are also typical of the region. Lampascioni, for example, can be found in Salento, garlic in Piacenza, and dried tomatoes in Bari.
