Skewerlicious! Antipasto Skewers


– – – – — 

I love skewers of any kind!  BBQ, fruit, grilled veggies, you name it!
And now I heart Antipasto Skewers!
They are a combo of some of my most favourite foods, so how can you go wrong?!

I have seen these around, so thought I’d give them a try for a get-together we had this weekend.
The fun thing about them is that you can try so many different things!
They look fancy, but are so easy, and so delish!
They went over really well!

Antipasto Skewers
Here is what I used, but the possibilities are endless.  You can get as creative as you wish!  And the amounts of each ingredient depends on how many people you are planning to serve.

– – – – — 

Olives – I used Kalamata Olives and Feta Stuffed Green Olives
Gypsy Salami
Artichoke Hearts, Pickled
Cherry Tomatoes
Cheese – I used chunks of Cheddar, and Bocconcini
Three Cheese Tortellini
Italian Salad Dressing

  • First, cook tortellini according to package directions.
  • Then pour on your Italian Salad Dressing and marinate for a few hours or overnight.
  • When the tortellini has been marinated for the appropriate time, it’s time to skewer!
  • Skewer on!

A super easy and fancy looking treat for guests!

  24. I’m making these tomorrow. My mouth is watering! wow

  25. I make these at every function I go to. They are always a big hit, delish, and super easy. My kind of entertaining! I know they are probably more of a summer idea but I have made these for Christmas, NY, and for parties during all times of the year. LOVE THEM

  26. This is perfect! I’m going to a potluck with about 100 others, so I know it’s going to be chaos. Something easy to grab without holding up the line is exactly what I was looking for, and your combination of goodies on the skewer looks yummy!
