Antipasto is the traditional first course of formal Italian meals that include cured meats, olives, mushrooms, pickled vegetables with vinegar and oil, and cheeses. We have a recipe that may not be traditionally Italian, but it will become a must-have in any gatherings. This Antipasto Dip replaces cured meats with tuna, making lighter and more affordable. It’s easy to make and it will make you the most liked host or the favorite guest at your next gathering.
