Easy Antipasto Wreath

Easy Antipasto Wreath
  • 1 package of sliced salami (ours was 6 oz)
  • 1 jar artichoke hearts (drained and cut in half)
  • 1 jar roasted red bell peppers (drained)
  • 1 container fresh mozzarella balls or pearls (8 oz, drained)
  • 1- 1 and ½ pints Maverick Mix® Tomatoes
  • 1 jar pepperoncini peppers
  • Pitted olives (we used a couple different varieties here)
  • A few handfuls of fresh basil leaves
  • Several fresh rosemary sprigs for garnish
  • You will also need small skewers, approximately 3 to 4 inches in size.
  • You may also want to serve with a dressing, like shown above. We used a store bought Italian dressing here.
  1. Heat butter and a few drizzles of oil in a large soup pot. Add garlic and sauté on medium-high heat until fragrant.
  2. Prep all of your ingredients (cut, drain, etc. as needed).
  3. Then set up all of your ingredients so that you almost have a kind of assembly line to work with.
  4. Now, take your skewers, and mix and match ingredients; threading items on skewers as shown. You will not use all ingredients on every skewer, and may want to leave some meat/cheese free.
  5. Once you have threaded all skewers, start arranging them on a circular plate. Depending on the number of skewers you make, you will overlap a time or two.
  6. If using a dressing, as shown, place dip bowl in the center of skewers/center of plate.
  7. Finally, cut off small pieces from the rosemary sprigs and place them into different places around the plate, for a more wreath-like feel.
