Last night, we hosted our annual Holiday Party. This time around, I decided to just serve a variety of appetizers instead of a full on meal. I took to my favorite wesbite, Pinterest, to find some tasty new appetizer recipes to try. I came across this recipe for Antipasto Skewers and thought it was a great bite-sized version of an antipasto salad. Even better, it looked like a super easy appetizer that I could make ahead of time! I assume it was a hit at the party, because they were the first appetizers to go!
9 oz package of Three Cheese Tortellini (I used Buitoni)
1 can Medium or Large pitted Black Olives*
5.75 oz jar Green Olives *
medium sized container of grape tomatoes*
2-12 oz containers of marinated mozzarella balls (I used regular since I couldn't find marinated)
30 slices of Salami, cut in half
60 pieces of pepperoni
1 cup Balsamic Vinaigrette Salad Dressing
*These are the original amounts in the recipe that I used. I found that I ran out of green olives and tomatoes early, so you may want to double these ingredients. For the black olives, I still had some to use but might double this also next time.
Cook the tortellini as directed on the package. Drain and cool a bit before placing in a gallon ziploc bag or bowl. Pour in the salad dressing on the tortellini and marinate in the refrigerator to chill for a few hours.
Place one of each item onto the skewer using the pointy side.
These skewers can be made a few hours in advance. Just cover tightly and place in the refrigerator.
