My father would have loved this appetizer. You see my dad was a meat-a-tarian. He only had 5 total fruits and vegetables that he liked.
Fortunately my mom refused to have her kids eat such a limited diet and feed us everything. I am so glad I'm not a picky eater... but picking is what this meat eater's delight is about... a little piece of salami, a prosciutto with melon and maybe an olive or two, so mom thinks your eating healthy... a great starter to your Father's Day Picnic.
