what would you serve with deli?

I'm serving deli with potato salad, coleslaw, pickles etc. I want to put out some food to start, but I'm not sure what would really go. Deli is pretty heavy on it's own, but I always like to have something to nibble on beforehand.

  1. Brischetta types of things --- Bagel chips or similar with a tapenade or two.

    1. I would really just put out some chips or something like that. Sounds like you got a pretty complete meal. can I come?

      1. I think marinaded vegetables kind of antipasti type. Like roasted marinaded eggplant, artichoke hearts, mushrooms, pickeled cauliflower, peppercini, roasted red peppers. Light, but with a strong flavor and something to much on before and after the deli stuff is served.

        1. What is "deli" ?. I know what A "deli" is (short for delicatessan). Just curious what "deli" the dish is ? Thanks.

            NY deli - pastrami, turkey, rye bread - sandwiches will be already made up along with cole slaw, pickles etc on the side. It's for my son's 2nd birthday. I had a craving for deli and I wasn't up for cooking this year. Thanks for the ideas.
