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?
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
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
- Cook tortellini according to package instructions, then rinse in cold water and drain.
- 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.
- 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.
