Gluten-Free Antipasto Skewers

December 17th

Christmas Eve is one week away. Time to start buttoning up the menus and shopping for a week full of family and fun. Everyone is starting to get into the spirit and Christmas is in full swing. I made these tasty appetizers last year for Christmas Eve, they were a complete hit. Its the best of both world, antipasto without having to touch a fork. You can prep them the night before and serve when guests start arriving. Everyone loves a fun finger food during this time of year.

Ingredients for Antipasto Skewers:

  • 1 lb mozzarella balls
  • 2 package of gluten-free gnocchi
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 stick genoa salami, sliced and halved
  • 1-pint cherry tomatoes

 The Creation of the Antipasto Skewers:

  1. Make gnocchi using the directions on the package.
  2. In a large bowl, add all ingredients and mix until everything is well coated. Cover and marinate for at least 2 hours, if possible, overnight to help develop the most flavor.
  3. On a bamboo skewer, add the marinated mozzarella, gnocchi, salami, and the tomatoes in whatever order you’d like.
  4. Serve immediately or refrigerate until 20 minutes before serving, then bring to room temperature.10898124_10104475924218918_6585000707311497820_n
