Antipasto Skewers

Antipasto Skewers

I’m not a big fan of the standard veggie and dip platter at parties.  If I’m at a party I don’t want “diet” food, I want to splurge a little!  I know many people feel the same since carrots and celery always seems to be the last stuff eaten.  However, with all the entertaining I’ve done over the years as a Navy wife, I’ve found people love antipasto platters.  Along with cheese, olives, cured meats, marinated mushrooms, artichokes, etc., I like to put a few different grilled veggies on my platters.  Grilled asparagus, eggplant, and zucchini…whatever I’m in the mood for.  I’ve also learned that party guests enjoy hand held food like skewers. So, for my last party I decided to combine my love for antipasto platters and skewers with these Antipasto Skewers.
