Start the meal off with a flavour packed antipasto appetizer skewer consisting of meat, olives, pickles, cheese, roasted vegetables and fresh basil to wake up the appetite! They are extremely simple to assemble, and you can make them in advance leaving you more time to mingle with your guests.
They are elegant enough to serve at an intimate dinner party, during the holiday season and do not forget game day! Everyone loves food on a stick!
