Spreads for sandwiches/antipasto tray

curiousbaker | Jul 25, 2006 08:21 PM

I'm catering a family party next weekend. The plan is to make a few roasts (1/2 turkey, beef, and probably a boneless shoulder), slice and lay them out cold, fill a big basket with bread and rolls, and let people make their own sandwiches. I'll also make up a fruit tray, antipasto tray, a cheese tray, green salad, and of course dessert. The plan is to go with a vaguely Mediterranean feel, emphasizing fresh figs, melon and grapes on the fruit tray and so forth. I'm looking for some spreads to put out to snazz up the sandwich options a little. I intend to offer the basics, because some people will definitely be looking for mustard and mayo and I can't stop them. But I was going to offer a fig and caramelized onion spread and an olive tapenade. Does anyone have any suggestions for other interesting spreads that would suit? Also, any suggestions for the antipasto tray? I'll have a few types of olives, some roasted peppers and plum tomatoes, marinated mushrooms, and anything that looks interesting at the local Italian shop, but if anyone has any good ideas, I would be grateful. Make-ahead preferred. Thanks.
