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!

    I love to add olives with the pips in to my hors d’oeuvres platter. There’s always a bit of fun to be had in throwing the pips over the railing into the bush and seeing who’s goes the farthest!

  • Monica S.

    Hubby and i stumbled across a ‘reduced’ price Brie with cranberries…something different but totally sublime! At $70 a kilo original price, our platter looked fit for a king that night! For a normal night of nibbles…olives are a must!
