Antipasto Kabobs

TWO POSTS IN TWO DAYS??? Yeah, don’t get used to it.
Again, being Mrs. Responsible and putting up some Super Bowl related yummies for you to make.
I made these for My Brother-In-Laws little birthday shin-dig. I was afraid they were a bit fancy and wouldn’t get eaten, but to my surprise, everyone loved them. There are no less than 5,975,091 recipes for these on line, the possibilities are endless. Get whatever you want, poke a stick through it, and viola.. instant appetizer.

1  9 oz package of Three Cheese Tortellini ,(I used Buitoni )cooked to package directions
1 can Medium or Large pitted Black Olives
1 5.75 oz jar Green Olives
2 12 oz containers of marinated mozzarella balls(usually found near the speciality cheeses)
30 slices of Salami, cut in half
60 pieces of pepperoni
1 cup Balsamic Vinaigrette Salad Dressing (store bought or homemade), I used Paul Newmans( he and   my Dad used to race cars together)
60 Skewers   How ever many you want to make. I had to cut mine in half

Place the cooked tortellini in a bowl or large gallon freeze bag. Pour the salad dressing over the top and marinade in the fridge for a few hours.
Drain the pasta.
Place one of each item onto the skewer using the pointy side.
Can be made a few hours in advance. Just cover tightly and place in the refrigerator.

    Are you kidding me? I so want to pop like..10 of those in my mouth right now, they look freaking delicious! And I honestly would have never thought to put tortellini on a stick..LOVE it! What isn't good on a friggen stick though? Does that sound bad? Oh well who cares, these are awesome. Thanks for sharing them, my family would love 'em!

    These would be perfect party apps. Wonderful!

  7. 7

    Even though the Packers are playing and I should, ahem, root for them as they are our neighbors….I just can't do it.

    The kebobs do look fab and easy to put together ahead of time!

    I may have to throw a Super Bowl party just so I can eat an entire platter of those!

  12. 12

    I like how colorful these are and the flavor combinations work for me.

    I don't think I've ever made a skewer that I didn't throw on the grill but these little boys rock.

  13. 13

    Yep, I am serving up a version of this at our little Super Bowl party, good choice!

  14. 14

    How have I never seen these before? Such a good idea. I wonder if kids will eat vegetables if you put them on a stick sandwiched between salami? Worth a try…

    I made these for a birthday party last night and they were a HIT. I did mix it up just a *teeny* bit though: I got sick of skewering so after making about 10 kabobs, I dumped the rest of the ingredients in a big bowl with some spinach (should have added basil as well, time 🙂 ) and tossed it all together. SO good!

    Totally reblogging this.

      Thinking about a graduation luncheon and these looked perfect. SOOO loved your idea, though, of having all of it in a big bowl over (baby) spinach and serving that way. PERFECT! Thanks to you both.

    i made this dish over the weekend for some friends & oh my, it was most delicious!!! it’s now a regular in our house, that it’s so good!!!

    Love these! Question? Your picture shows tomatoes on the skewer but I didn’t see it listed in the ingredients. I wanted to know if they are grilled tomatoes or not. Thanks!

      Thank you so very much for bringing the error to my attention in my recipe. I can’t believe you’re the first person to catch that, as they have been wildly popular over the net!
      They are just regular cherry tomatoes, uncooked.

      Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    I make this for a family get together. I didn’t skewer it because knowing my family someone would’ve poke an eye out or pierced a body part. I just mixed everything in a bowl and added some marinated artichoke hearts too. It was gone by the end of the night and not trips to the ER! I’d say that was a huge success!!
