Here’s a lovely, no-cook appetizer that is sure to please. These antipasto skewers are perfect for a cocktail party or wine tasting party. Just use the very best ingredients you can find and put them together 30 minutes before your guests arrive.

large wine glasses

bamboo skewers

cherry or grape tomatoes

marinated artichoke hearts, quartered

fresh mozzarella cheese balls (pearl type)

thinly sliced Genoa salami

smoked ham chunks

fresh basil leaves

Kalamata olives

canned, fire-roasted red peppers, cut into bite size chunks (or pepperoncini)

oven-roasted garlic cloves, cooled and peeled

unfiltered extra virgin olive oil

balsamic vinegar

freshly ground pepper

coarse sea salt

For maximum flavor, allow all ingredients to come to room temperature before putting them on the skewers. (At least 30 minutes… no more than 60 minutes.)

Drizzle some olive oil and balsamic into the bottoms of the large wine glasses. Pierce the tomatoes, artichoke heart quarters, cheese balls, salami, ham, basil leaves, olives, red pepper and oven roasted garlic cloves onto the bamboo skewers. Repeat, pushing the ingredients together on the skewers (you’ll want to leave a little room at one end so they can be held.) Place in wine glasses. Drizzle a little more oil and vinegar over, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Serve.

Enjoy with a glass of your favorite wine!
