Coming up with fresh and exciting lunch ideas can be very challenging. I often get tired of eating the same thing for lunch day after day, but here is one lunch that I never grow tired of…antipasto!

Antipasto is a great lunch because it’s easy to prepare and pack or serve, plus it can be both healthy and filling. When it comes to making a good antipasto are there are no rules (well, there are no rules in my book) so you can feel free to include as many or as few ingredients as you’d like.


Some of my favorite antipasto ingredients are:

  • Roasted red peppers
  • Artichoke hearts
  • Sliced cucumbers
  • Marinated olives
  • Sun dried tomatoes
  • Cherry or grape tomatoes
  • Hummus and/or tabbouleh
  • Sliced provolone cheese
  • Thinly sliced Genoa salami (might want to go easy on the salami…I’m just saying)


Some of my other favorite antipasto ingredients:

  • Roasted or grilled eggplant
  • Roasted yellow peppers
  • Marinated mushrooms
  • Fresh mozzarella balls
  • Roasted or grilled zucchini or yellow squash
  • Chick peas (garbanzo beans)
  • Banana peppers
  • Roasted or grilled asparagus
  • Marinated fresh green beans

Here are a couple of other inspiring antipasto recipes:

Enjoy the weekend!
