These Antipasto Salad Kabobs are a perfect appetizer to serve to a crowd because there’s something for everyone. No having to worry about who likes what…there’s usually something that everyone likes on an antipasto platter.
I have to say, I’m not a big salad guy at all. I eat plenty of other vegetables, just not in salad form. But I do love an antipasto salad…minus the salad part.
Then I thought about combining antipasto and salad together and putting it on a stick to make it more fun to eat.
Did it work? I think it did.
These kabobs would be an interesting way to serve an antipasto platter at your next party or BBQ, you’re guests would be way more impressed than a bowl of salad thrown on the table.
All you have to do is grab your favorite meats and cheeses and whatever other antipasto ingredients you like, olives, roasted red peppers…whatever you can think of.
Then I just threaded them on a wooden skewer and put some (some) lettuce leaves on there too. It’s not a LOT of salad, but it counts right?
You could drizzle these Antipasto Salad Kabobs with your favorite vinaigrette, or put out a couple of different dressing for dipping.
The kids liked dipping each piece into their favorite dressing and eating it off the stick, but we took our antipasto salad off the kabobs and tossed them in a bowl with some balsamic vinaigrette. Add some bread and these kabobs are almost a full meal.
The ratio of these Antipasto Salad Kabobs is perfect for me…lots of meat and cheese and just a little bit of lettuce.
