Some foods are just better on a skewer. Kebabs. Corn dogs. Chicken satay. None would be the same served sans wooden stick. If they don’t actually taste better, they’re at least more fun to eat.
These antipasto skewers are no different – except they’re way easier to make, and way prettier. The key with these is to use the freshest, most high-quality ingredients available.
After that, it’s just spending a few minutes shoving food on a stick. Just try not to eat it all while you’re preparing it.
