We went to a little extra work today for our antipasti tray and made antipasto skewers. These antipasto kabobs are gorgeous and with the holidays coming up, we are always looking for great and different appetizer recipes. Antipasto on a stick would also be fun at your game day party and would bring something very different to the snack table.
We started assembling our antipasto skewers in a specific order and then just went with it, each one is a little different. And you don’t have to use the same antipasto ingredients that we used; you could shake it up and add any of your favorites. Folding a leaf of basil not only adds a pretty color to our pasta tray it also adds great Italian flavor.
And if you have picky eaters, it would be gracious as a host to make several different varieties of these appetizers. For instance, leave out the salami and replace it with prosciutto or change up the cheeses. We believe the sky is the limit with this appetizer idea. The last time we served this, we had the family help us with the skewering which made a fun time for all. I love it when the party begins in the kitchen together.
- Cook tortellini according to package directions, drain and rinse with cold water. Place the tortellini in a bowl, coat liberally with Italian dressing. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour.
- Place your ingredients in bowls, in the order, you wish to assemble the skewers. Tomato, black olive, basil leaves, mozzarella balls, salami slice, green olives, basil leaf, and tortellini (or any order you like)
- Remove the skewers from the water and begin to place ingredients on skewers, folding basil leaves in half and salami in fourths. Repeat order at least once more
- After all the skewers have been assembled, stack on a dish and liberally sprinkle with additional Italian salad dressing.
