Whip up a delicious platter to impress your friends + win some treats for yourself!

Brought to you by Always Fresh.

Today I wanted to introduce you to the new ‘Mediterranean Deli’ range by Always Fresh, a collection of authentic antipasto mixes. We’ve been trialling them at home and I can honestly say these goodies are delicious. This range includes traditional favourite antipasto mixes which have been thoughtfully produced in regions within Greece and Italy. They look amazing on the plate too.

My favourite would have to be the Sundried Tomatoes and the Chilli Olives. You can see the full range here.

I made this platter up on the weekend and took to a friend’s house to share around and enjoy.


You can easily create this yourself at home. The Mediterranean Deli range is perfect for entertaining and will impress any guest wherever you go!

  • Maureen Ellis

    A tiny jar of Maggie Beer’s Quince Paste is a welcome addition to the platter!

    I love the idea of just putting everything on the board! I always put my dips & olives in tiny bowls and then have trouble putting everything else on too! This is such a good idea!
