    oz. salami, cut into 1-inch cubes

  • 12

    bocconcini (Italian mini mozzarella balls)

  • 12

    slices of deli pepperoni, folded into a triangle

  • 12

    oil-cured black olives

  • 12

    marinated mushrooms (optional)

  • 12

    Italian pickled peppers (optional)

  • Marinade:

  • ½

    cup extra virgin olive oil

  • 2-3

    tbsp. red wine vinegar

  • 2

    tbsp. minced fresh basil

  • 1

    tbsp. minced fresh oregano

  • 1

    tsp. sea salt

  • 1

    tsp. freshly ground black pepper

Directions

1. Picking and choosing the ingredients you like, assemble your antipasto skewers as desired. I like to add cubes of provolone for a bit of extra cheese. Place prepared skewers in a resealable bag or appropriately-sized tupperware. 2. In a small bowl, combine the marinade ingredients. 3. Pour marinade over your assembled skewers. Let them marinate at least several hours (or overnight). Shake occasionally to assure marinade is well distributed. 4. Drain well and serve on a tray garnished with lots of arugula leaves.
