4. Rainbow Antipasto Pasta Salad
I don’t know about you, but whenever I create an antipasto platter for a gathering, I tend to get a weeee bit overzealous with my spread of ingredients. I want to include so many cheeses, olives, peppers and meats!

5. Tomato, Bocconcini and Basil Salad
Tomato, bocconcini, and basil salad is one of my all-time favourites. Have you had it?

It’s a flavour combination that drives me up the wall (in the best possible way). It’s so simple, yet so, so satisfying.

Just as I love to do, I’m giving you the base recipe below and a few ideas to take it a step or two further if you have the funds or desire for something a little extra fancy. I wanted to keep my recipe vegan, but if that’s not a concern for you a little cheese would be awesome with this mix. Try a few crumbles of feta, or those cute little mozzarella pearls.
