Simple Italian Lunch Platter

…with Caprese sandwich and Prosciutto


Italian Lunch Platter

I love when I’m able to serve something so simple and yet it looks so impressive. If there is one trend I hope never goes away, is serving food on a wooden board. Unfortunately, since I just moved I don’t have all of my serving wooden boards, but I now have an excuse to go shopping for kitchen supplies.

This Italian platter is a simple one, which I made with some basic that I had at home and some things I got when doing groceries. It is great if you have guests coming over, but no time to prepare. Or if you just want to spoil your family with a special lunch on Sunday. You can go as crazy and elaborate as you want, though. That is the great thing about a platter. In the near future, I will post a recipe of a big platter.
