Antipasto Skewers

Antipasto Skewers are quick and easy to make and are a substantial appetizer.  They are perfect make ahead party or picnic bites.

I chose to use cocktail or grape tomatoes, bocconcini cheese balls, tortellini and marinated mushrooms.  I love this combination but you can switch it up to include any of your favourite items or what you have on hand.

Think – salami, pepperoncini, Italian cheese cubes, pickled onions, piquillo peppers, olives (lots of choices here for flavoured,marinated olives).

But.. back to my version. I was trying to keep it light so I was trying to keep the cheese and salami quotient down…hence the marinated mushroom and tomatoes.  The tortellini are tossed in pesto and sprinkled with a bit of parmesan cheese while they are still warm.  You get a big flavour hit with built in portion control!  Very clever I thought…

I made my own marinated mushrooms. This is one of my new favourite summer condiments.  If you don’t want to make your own (although they are pretty easy and delicious!) you can easily buy them  from specialty delis or jars of them from the pickle section of your grocery store.  

Marinated Mushrooms

These skewers make great party or picnic food.  You can make them ahead, they store and transport well.
