Baby Vegetable Antipasto


This is a SparkPeople.com Recipe (what's this)

Introduction

The vegetables can marinate for a couple of hours, so all you'll have to do at party time is arrange them on a platter and top with olives and cheese. Immediately place the prepared vegetables in the marinade so they won't discolor. Be sure to use fresh mozzarella, which comes packed in water and is usually found with the specialty cheeses. Coarsely chop leftovers and toss with pasta for a cold salad.
