Antipasto skewers are somewhat similar, but there are some extra ingredients like olives, salami, pepperoncini peppers, marinated mushrooms and artichoke hearts. All these ingredients complement each other very well. You can skip some of them and add others like tortellini (I try to stay away from carbs as much as I could, that’s why I didn’t use any) or even peppers.

What to put on antipasto skewers?

It all depends on your personal taste and what your guests enjoy. I’ve seen a lot pf different options on the web. But sometimes we don’t even have all the ingredients that a recipe calls for, so you san improvise.

I’d say, use cherry or grape tomatoes, cheese (like mozzarella or feta), meat (like salami or prosciutto), olives (any kind of olives), basil if you have it.

In today’s recipe, I also used some homemade Marinated Mushrooms, artichoke hearts and Pepperoncini peppers.

Other optional ingredients are sweet pickled mini peppers, tortellini or cornichons (mini pickles).
