interesting antipasti?

I am making an antipasti platter for a gourmand girlfriend's stagette (lucky grrrl!)...any exciting suggestions out there for what to include? (aside for the boring old roast red peppers, eggplant,salumi, artichoke hearts, cheese, olives & pickles?) I saw something once about jeruselum artichokes??? please help!

  1. Maybe some meatballs, parmesan crusted shrimp, or calamari if you're doing heated stuff?

    1. Martha Stewart's Hors D'oeuvres Handbook is chock full of ideas. Worth owning.

      1. Made some Caponata at Christmas. It was a little labour intensive but delicious.

        1. Shrimp sauteed in minced garlic & butter, S & P, then tossed in balsamic vinegar .
          V finely minced parsely over top.

          1. Tapenade (olive paste).
            White anchovies (one of my favorite foods on the planet!)
            Grilled asparagus spears.
