I am going to be doing a series of watercolor food illustrations. For this series I chose to create one food item for every letter of the Alphabet. A is for Antipasto Salad. What is an antipasto salad? Well, antipasti means "before a meal", it is the first course for a traditional Italian meal. The traditional salad comes with cheese, meats, veggies in oil and other items like olives and artichokes. I chose the salad because whenever I hear someone mention this salad I think of the time my friend's husband thought we were joking with him when we asked him to order an antipasto salad. He thought he heard us ask for an anti-pasta salad. He kept asking when an anti-pasta salad was and why we would ever want that. We couldn't stop laughing long enough to explain.
