    What can I expect? 

    These antipasto skewers are inspired by traditional antipasto platters and antipasto salad. However, unlike most recipes, these skewers are free from heavily processed pasta. 

    Instead, we load the skewers up with fresh veggies, cheese, and meat. As a result, they’re even more nutritious and filling than original recipes. 

    Even better, with no need to boil pasta, they come together in minutes. All you have to do is drain any excess liquid or brine, slice the meat, and skewer the ingredients. 

    This recipe makes for great party appetizers, cookout sides, or easy snacks. No matter how you serve the skewers, they’re sure to be a hit!

      Let’s take a look at the main ingredients: 

      • Cherry tomatoes
      • Mozzarella cheese
      • Soppressata
      • Olives
      • Artichoke hearts
      • Olive oil

      Tomatoes, soppressata, olives, artichoke hearts, and olive oil are all natural, nutritious food sources. Incorporate them into your favorite recipes for added nutrients and flavor. 

      But what about mozzarella cheese? Is dairy healthy?

      Here’s what we know. Dairy is full of vitamins, minerals, protein, and natural fat energy. But if everyone consumed dairy all of the time, dairy farming would become abusive and unsustainable…

      Let’s be mindful of our dairy intake. Buy dairy that comes from pasture-raised cows and try to eat less. 

      Sugar is what makes food unhealthy.

      Most antipasto skewers are made with tortellini (a starchy carb), which digests very similarly to sugar. 

      Add 48g of starchy tortellini pasta pieces to this recipe, and you’re looking at heartburn with an energy crash. (And you’ll be scouring the pantry for your next sugar snack within the hour.)

      Omit the pasta, and this recipe becomes nourishment. The ingredients provide vitamins, minerals, protein, and quality, whole-food energy. 

      Enjoy these low-carb antipasto skewers knowing they support your well-being.

      Antipasto Skewers Tips

      Healthy Antipasto Skewer! Greek Appetizer Recipes.

      1. Make ahead

      These skewers are best served right away while the ingredients are still fresh. However, if you want to prepare in advance, you can drain the mozzarella, artichoke hearts, and olives and cut the meat into half-moon pieces. 

      Then, store all the ingredients in separate airtight containers in the fridge for up to one day. When it’s time to assemble, all you have to do is skewer the ingredients and enjoy! 

      2. Add more flavor 

      For even more flavor, feel free to add a drizzle of balsamic vinegar, a sprinkle of parsley, or dried oregano to the skewers just before serving. 

      3. Incorporate more veggies

      Feel free to incorporate any extra veggies you have on hand. Roasted red peppers, marinated mushrooms, marinated baby corn, or grilled asparagus all make great additions. 

      4. Create an appetizer platter

      If you’re preparing for a party or feeding a crowd, why not go all out? These antipasto skewers pair well with a variety of snacks and appetizers to create a snack platter. Some of our favorite pairings include crispy zucchini chips, buffalo chicken dip, cowboy caviar dip, and spinach artichoke dip bites
