Delicious ingredients all together in one little appetizer skewer. These Antipasto Skewers are a super easy, make-ahead, grab-and-go party snack!
- 18 6" wooden skewers
- 18 cheese tortellini cooked and cooled
- 1/4 cup bottled Italian salad dressing
- 18 large pitted black olives
- 18 cubes havarti cheese approximately 8 ounces
- 18 slices of salami
- 18 cherry or grape tomatoes
- 18 to 36 depending on size fresh basil leaves
- 18 marinated mozzarella balls
Cook tortellini about 1 minute shy of package directions. After cooking, drain and immediately rinse with cool water to stop the cooking process. Drain well, transfer to a container with a lid, and add the Italian salad dressing. Toss lightly to be sure the tortellini is well coated with dressing; cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or overnight.
Thread the ingredients on to the skewers in any order you'd like. For a nice color contrast, here's how I did it:Olive, Havarti, Salami, Tortellini, Tomato, Basil, Marinated Mozzarella
I folded the salami in quarters (in half and then in half again) before threading it onto the skewers.
My basil leaves were quite small so I stacked two together and folded them before adding them to the skewers.
Total time does not include 3+ hours marinating time for cheese tortellini.
