Great Snack for the Superbowl! Or Anytime Appetizer.

If you are like me, you are always looking for a tasty but super easy item to serve or bring to a party. This one won’t disappoint!

It’s a twist on the classic Caprese Salad on a stick. You know, the one with a grape tomato, piece of basil, and a piece of mozzarella?caprese

 

 

This recipe adds a couple more ingredients (you will need medium length skewers), plus a 1/4 cup of seasoning, so it not only looks more impressive it is so much more flavorful.

 

Easy Antipasto Skewers

Serves about 8-10

Ingredients

1 can medium or large  black olives
1 cup grape tomatoes
1 cup  of small fresh mozzarella balls
¼ pound salami, thinly sliced
¼ cup fresh basil leaves
9 oz package of cheese tortellini
1/4  cup Italian dressing
skewers

Directions

  1. Cook tortellini according to package instructions, then rinse in cold water and drain.
  2. Arrange first 6 ingredients on skewers until skewer is full.  Place in a shallow baking dish; drizzle with Italian Dressing. Cover and chill a couple  hours or overnight.
  3. Need to make these vegetarian? Leave off the salami and add on extras of the other ingredients

 

I served this as an appetizer before a dinner party and it was a hit.
