Antipasto Salad Skewers

A few weeks ago while going through my Instagram feed, I stumbled upon a photo posted by Danielle of Sometimes Sweet featuring a delicious looking plate of antipasto skewers.  I decided to recreate her “salad on a stick” for a weekend family barbecue.  They were a hit even before they were served! Who doesn’t love food on a stick???
With the left over ingredients, I threw together a tortellini pasta salad and a regular green salad.  We had a feast of homemade hamburgers, hot dogs and sausage with peppers, onions and potatoes served with crusty Portuguese rolls.  So much yum!  And for dessert, Mom made her homemade cream puffs that are always delicious!
