Antipasto Wraps

March 3, 2021 by Chris Collins

These Antipasto Wraps are absolutely loaded with flavour. They’re quick, easy and perfect for lunch!

The other great thing about these wraps is they’re so versatile. Antipasto is open to endless possibilities, but here I’ll show you exactly how I like mine! Follow me…

Pesto Mayonnaise

This is the pièce de résistance in these wraps. If you’ve never tried pesto mayo before I promise you’ll be slathering it over just about everything once you’ve tried it. Put simply, all you need is:

  • Mayo – Full fat of course.
  • Pesto – Basil pesto always, preferably homemade!
  • Lemon Juice -This cuts through the richness of the sauce and adds a gentle, but vibrant kick of flavour.

The pesto mayo brings everything in the wrap together with a good kick of flavour. No mayo? No problem! Just use a dollop of pesto instead. I’ve tried this in the past and works just as well. I’m just a mayo fanatic as we all know 😛

Antipasto Wraps

When it comes to what kind of antipasto ingredients to use, you can really follow your tastebuds! For guidance though here’s what I recommend:

  • Cured Meat – Here I use prosciutto and salami, but pepperoni, Bresaola and Capicola are all popular antipasto choices!
  • Cheese – I opt for fresh mozzarella, but I’ve tried this with provolone before which works nicely!
  • Veg – Here we’ve got sun dried tomatoes, artichoke hearts and Kalamata olives. Grilled aubergine/eggplant and marinated mushrooms would also work well!
  • Greens – I recommend using rocket/arugula!

Marinated Ingredients

Whilst a lot of antipasti ingredients come in a brine/oil/marinade, I recommend patting them dry before constructing the wraps. Reason being the wrap will end up way too oil/damp otherwise. Don’t rinse with with water, you want to keep some of the yummy flavour the ingredients are wrapped in 😋

TOASTED Antipasto Wraps

You can eat these straight after you’ve folded the wrap, or you can do what I usually do and toast the wraps. This not only melts the mozzarella, but it also gives the wraps a crispy exterior and a nice smoky flavour.

To toast the wraps just gently rotate them with a pair of tongs in a scorching hot DRY griddle/frying pan.

Serving Antipasto Wraps

If you’re not toasting them you can make them ahead of time and chill in the fridge until needed. If you want to toast them from there you can do. I usually serve with fries but check out my sides for more inspo!

Notes:

a) Pesto Mayo - I usually make this in a bigger batch and store in the fridge for other sandwiches/wraps or even as a dip! You can play around with the ratios but I recommend 3/4cup/180g mayonnaise, 2-3 tbsp basil pesto and the juice of half a lemon (or to taste). Just combine in a bowl, taste test and adjust as needed. Alternatively you can just use pesto!
b) Excess Oil/Patting Dry - Important to pat the ingredients dry, especially if using artichokes/olives/sun dried tomatoes in oil. Don't rinse though, you want to keep some of the added flavour.
c) Toasted Wrap - Especially important to ensure the wrap isn't too oily inside or it starts to leak as you toast the wrap. To toast the wrap just use a pair of tongs to slowly rotate the wrap in a dry griddle or frying pan over HIGH heat.
d) Make Ahead - Only make ahead if not toasting (can toast before serving if you wish, just bring close to room temp or they won't heat right through). Tightly seal in the fridge for 2-3days, longer at your discretion.
