Nostalgic and easy - two of our favorite things in a holiday appetizer.
Notes from the LHTC Team:
We love how simple this appetizer is. Many of us have seen or had an antipasto appetizer before, but the wreath shape is an extra festive touch on a classic. And it's hard to go wrong with salami and balls of cheese, just sayin'. You could go the extra mile by brushing with a little extra virgin olive oil and a crack of black pepper at the end too.
Festive Antipasto Wreath
Servings: 18-20 Skewers | Prep Time: 15 Minutes
1 pint Cherry Tomatoes
1 small jar Green or Black Olives
1/4 lb thinly sliced Salami
Fresh Small Mozzarella Balls
4-5 small Sweet Peppers, sliced 1/2-inch thick
Fresh Basil Leaves
Olive Oil, if desired
Freshly Ground Black Pepper, if desired
Sprigs of fresh Rosemary, for garnishing the platter if desired
Roasted Red Peppers
Canned or jarred Artichoke Hearts
Pickled Banana Peppers
1. Place cherry tomatoes, olives, folded salami, mozzarella balls, sliced sweet peppers and folded basil leaves alternately on skewers. Choose a pattern or mix it up by doing a different order on each skewer (what we did). Brush with olive oil and a sprinkle of black pepper. Serve immediately or refrigerate and serve within 2 days.
