If you haven’t made these for a backyard get together or a cocktail party, you are in for a treat! They are easy to make and easy to transport. I use 3 to 6-inch bamboo skewers (found at most grocery stores in equipment section) and always start with a cherry tomato and fresh mozzarella ball (marinated, if available). The rest of the skewer depends on what I have on hand…a piece of salami, marinated mushroom, black or kalamata olive, marinated artichoke, a cheese tortellini…the possibilities are endless!
These skewers were highlighted on NBC5 Chicago. Check it out!
Antipasto Skewers (makes 20 skewers)
1 pint cherry tomatoes, washed and drained
1- 16 ounce can black olives, drained
1/2 pound marinated mozzarella balls, drained
1/4 pound salami, sliced thick and cut into 1-inch pieces
Start each skewer with a tomato followed by mozzarella, olive, salami and finish with tomato. Repeat. Enjoy!
