5 from 1 reviews

Make mini antipasto skewers and shape them into a Christmas Antipasto Wreath for a festive and delicious holiday appetizer! Easy and tasty!


  • 1 bunch fresh rosemary sprigs
  • 1 bunch fresh basil
  • 1 cup sliced mini sweet peppers
  • 1 cup mini cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup sliced charcuterie salami
  • 1 cup olive mix (green, kalamata, black)
  • 1 cup cubed mozzarella cheese
  • 1 small jar artichoke hearts (170 g)
  • 2 cups cooked tortellini
  • 1/2 cup Italian salad dressing
  • 1 package of small skewers or appetizer picks


  1. First, cook the tortellini according to package directions.
  2. Then pour 1/2 cup (or more) of the Italian Salad Dressing on the cooked tortellini and marinate for a few hours or overnight.
  3. When the tortellini has marinated, it’s time to make mini skewers!
  4. I like to put each of the ingredients into small bowls spread out on the counter, then assemble from there. Try to get 1 of each of the ingredients onto a skewer. If you can’t, don’t worry about it, mix them up. Just make sure to layer in a couple basil leaves on each skewer.
  5. When the skewers are made, lay them out on a large plate, platter or board, in the shape of a circle to make a wreath, with the pointy ends of the skewers pointing in the centre.
  6. After you have the skewers all laid out, tuck in pieces of the fresh rosemary to fill in the spaces.
  7. Serve and enjoy!
