We all know it wouldn’t be too long before I posted something with cheese. Let’s just be real. I picked up a few different Italian-esque ingredients to go together on these Antipasto Skewers. These ingredients are prosciutto, kalamata olives (my favorite), marinated artichoke hearts, fresh basil, fresh mozzarella balls, and topped off with an amazing balsamic glaze.
I haven’t used artichoke hearts much, but the one recipe I will say I LOVE is this amazing and creamy Spinach Artichoke Dip. It’s another great recipe to bring to your next party! If you like chicken, you will probably also like this Skillet Caprese Chicken with Balsamic Glaze because 1)chicken 2)mozzarella 3)basil and 4)balsamic!
Are we noticing a bit of a trend here? Just a tad? Eh?
What I love about skewers is the ability to pick and choose how much or how little of each ingredient to put on each skewer. I may or may not have put extra mozzarella balls and extra prosciutto on my skewers, oh and drowned them in balsamic glaze. But hey, that’s the beauty of this! It’s fun to have some helpers in the kitchen that can assemble a little variety. I don’t like all of my skewers to look super identical with the same order, etcetera and that’s what I feel keeps them looking interesting.
I will say that I would have put cherry tomatoes on my skewers but I kind of forgot about them. They were off to the side and I was so caught up
snacking assembling the skewer ingredients that I totally forgot about poor ‘ol tomatoes.
