You can choose your favorite ingredients and customize this to your taste easily. I always try to stick to a couple of meats, a couple of pickled items, something fresh, a cheese, and a piece of tortellini.

Make sure you cook your pasta al dente so that it doesn’t fall apart when you pierce it with the skewer! And I recommend getting pitted olives for easy of putting this together.

I love using mozzarella balls (personal fav) but you could also easily substitute cubes of feta, cheddar or any other cheese you prefer.

Antipasto Skewers


  • Pitted kalamata olives
  • Bleu cheese stuffed green olives
  • Salami
  • Pepperoni
  • Cheese tortellini
  • Pickled brussels sprouts
  • Grape tomatoes
  • Mozzarella balls
  • 24 bamboo skewers


Put one of each ingredient on a skewer. I try to alternate colors and use greens and reds at the holidays – feel free to take creative license with your skewers!

I’ve made these the night before and kept them in the fridge, but I recommend making them only a few hours before your party.
