When in doubt, put it on a stick.
That’s my mantra anyway. I love using wooden skewers to make simple ingredients into easy to eat appetizers. So when I saw a recipe for antipasto salad skewers on The View From Great Island, I went all in. This idea is genius.
But I can’t say the word “antipasto” without thinking about Wallace and Gromit and the Curse of the Were-Rabbit. (trailer below)
In this chapter of the series, Wallace and Gromit run a pest removal service called “Anti-Pesto”. The town’s prize vegetables are going missing and Wallace and Gromit have to get to the bottom of it. But not before making a few ingenious inventions and getting into a hill of trouble. If you have kids, then this is one of those rare family films that the whole family will actually enjoy. It’s really funny.
But let’s get back to antipasto.
All you need to make an antipasto salad is some Italian meat, cheese, and pickled vegetables. Pretty much anything that’s pickled and comes in a jar can go into an antipasto salad. For these skewers, I used multi-colored grape tomatoes, pepperoncini, small mozzarella balls, fresh basil leaves, sopressata, mini gherkin pickles, marinated mushrooms, green olives, kalamata olives, artichoke hearts, prosciutto, and chunks of colby cheese. But these are just some suggestions. The sky’s the limit when you are making antipasto salads.
Ok, now I’m in the mood to watch a little more from Anti-Pesto. Till next time.
