Italian Antipasto Skewers with Balsamic Reduction
Italian Antipasto Skewers are perfect little bites of traditional Italian appetizer on a stick. Delicious combination of cured meats, mozzarella balls, marinated artichoke hearts, cherry tomatoes and olives drizzled with the balsamic reduction makes for one awesome crowd pleaser.
- 6 slices Prosciutto
- 6 slices Soppressata - spicy
- 6 balls Mozzarella - mini
- 18 Cherry tomatoes
- 12 Olives
- 6 Artichokes marinated, cut in half
- Basil or parsley leaves
- 3 tbsp Balsamic vinegar reduced
Using wooden skewers add antipasto ingredients in whatever order you prefer. I like to start and end with either tomatoes or olives.
Drizzle the skewers with balsamic reduction and basil or parsley leaves. You can also add basil or parsley leaves in between other ingredients.
Add balsamic vinegar to the pot and heat up on a low heat until reduced to the point that it sticks to the back of the spoon.
My mozzarella balls were pretty big so I cut them in half and sometimes even in the quarter. Depending on the size you can either have them whole or cut to the size that will fit well on a skewer.
I used store-bought balsamic reduction from Trader Joe's as I really like it, but if you don't have it you can simply make a reduction by using balsamic vinegar.
I used 3 tomatoes per skewer so my recipe calls for 18, but feel free to use less or more.
This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled or divided depending on a number of people you will be serving them for.
