That doesn't make them any less tasty.
Enter the Italian Antipasta plate. Not reinventing any wheels, here. Just giving my take. Also, so simple, yet filling enough for a busy mom to be able to check off the box of "I made dinner."
"Antipasta" covers a lot of ground, but for me it means: some kind of cured cold-cut (with or without fruit), a selection of cheeses (ours were decidedly NON-Italian, so go with what you like), fresh bread, and some kind of salty goodness - usually olives/anchovies/tapenade, etc. I threw in some arugula greens to make it pretty, and get something of a veggie in.
It's really a preference thing, but I will say, having GOOD olives is key for me. I'm not a big olive person in general, but these olives are absolutely amazing. Cerignola olives. Put it to memory. They're "young" olives, but still big and buttery. They're also preserved in a brine that isn't so ridiculously salty. They're just incredible. Check the specialty area of a grocery, gourmet food store, or in a pinch, Amazon sells them HERE.
