Antipasti Cheese Ball
Ideal for celebrations or holiday parties, no one will turn down a cheese ball that has all the goodies you’d find on an antipasti platter — think olives, salami, pepperoncini, and roasted red peppers. Plus, it's even easier than assembling an antipasti platter as everything gets mixed together in a bowl and refrigerated until serving, making it a great make-ahead appetizer.
Test Kitchen Tip
Castelvetrano’s crunchy, yet buttery flesh is mild-flavored, making these Sicilian olives great for snacking, and the perfect foil for the Kalamatas.
Beat together cream cheese, Parmesan, oil, garlic, vinegar, oregano, pepper flakes, and anchovy paste in a bowl with a mixer until combined; season with black pepper.
Stir in salami, roasted peppers, pepperoncini, Kalamata, and Castelvetrano olives.
Line a 3½-cup bowl with plastic wrap, press cheese mixture into bowl, smooth top, then cover with plastic wrap and chill overnight, or up to 1 week.
