This antipasto skewers recipe is the perfect lazy day Italian appetizer. They can easily be made from store bought pickled items or from your pantry stash! Easy to eat and very delicious!
One of my favorite appetizers are these delicious antipasto skewers. They are a great way to start the party and perfect for folks that like to graze when eating.
Also, they’re great for social butterflies because you can carry your whole appetizer around on a stick with you. What is better than that?
I say nothing; I do love my food on a stick.
Antipasto Skewers Recipe Appetizer
Antipasto can comprise of so many different things.
When you make these skewers, I want you to feel free to take liberties and substitute or add your favorite antipasto items.
Since you usually eat each ingredient on its own, I don’t think its as important as it normally would be if the flavors go together.
I included both Sweet Banana Wax Peppers and the Whole Golden Greek Peperoncini (cut in half) in my skewers. I couldn’t decide between the two so just went with both.
Eat. All. The. Peppers.
Antipasto Italian Appetizers
Antipasto means before the meal in Italian and this easy recipe is the perfect Italian appetizer.
I like to marinate my cherry tomatoes and fresh mozzarella in a blend of Italian spices and olive oil for about an hour before preparing my antipasto skewers.
This step isn’t necessary of course, but since it doesn’t take that long, why not do it.
The rest of the items I chose can be found in condiment aisle – just look for all the weird pickled things and go crazy!
Traditional antipasto includes:
- cured meats
- artichoke hearts
- pickled meats
- vegetables in oil or vinegar
It also occasionally includes fish if you are from a coastal region. Feel free to add or subtract for your personal taste.
