  • 12 8 inch Wooden Skewers
  • 24 Fresh Basil Leaves
  • 12 pieces Dry Italian Salami
  • 12 Cherry Tomatoes
  • 12 small Pepperoncini Peppers
  • 12 small Fresh Mozzarella Balls
  • 12 Kalamata Olives


  • Since the presentation is better if everything is the same size, cut any big pieces such as pepperoncini peppers, dry salami and mozzarella if needed and make sure there as at least 12 of each piece. 
  • For each 8 inch skewer, I thread 2 big basil leaves, one piece of dry Italian salami, one pepperoncini pepper, one small mozzarella ball, one cherry tomato and one kalamata olive
  • OPTIONAL: for added flavor, drizzle on some Italian dressing or balsamic glaze. 


Customize Your Antipasto Appetizer:

I made this recipe according to what I enjoy, but the beauty is that you can add whatever foods you like including:
  • Marinated Artichoke Hearts - Find these in the canned or ethnic section of your grocery store
  • Pepperoni - this popular meat is a perfect spicy kick to this appetizer
  • Prosciutto - one of my favorite cured meats for breakfast and appetizers
  • Cubed Cheese- cheddar, manchego, feta or anything that is on a cheese plate
  • Cheese Filled Tortellini - these can be cooked ahead of time and placed on the skewer cold
  • Cucumbers - a good way to add a healthy crunch
  • Roasted Red Peppers - these are popular in Italian cuisine and can be found in a jar at the grocery store 
  • Stuffed Olives - olives can be stuffed with cheese, peppers or even garlic
  • Drizzle with Italian Dressing
  • Drizzle with Balsamic Glaze
