A club member brought this to our dock party over the weekend. I could have made a meal on just this one appetizer alone.
On mini wood skewers (found at World Market), she skewered one slice of salami, folded in quarters; one chunk of roasted red pepper; one cube of pepper jack or mozzarella cheese; and one stuffed green olive.
Before skewering, she first marinated everything for 3-24 hours in a balsamic vinaigrette (she said Kraft's Greek Salad Dressing was also very good).
Soooo easy, soooo tasty!
Does this hat make my butt look big?
That's what I like -- easy appetizers!

Oooooh!, another great idea! I think I'll use it! Thanks for posting!!
Do you suppose other veggies & cheeses (perhaps buffalo Mozzarella, kalamata olives, grape or cherry tomatoes, etc.) would be good substitutes to vary the taste/cuisine?This message has been edited. Last edited by: Lurah,
Sure. my friend said she also would use broccoli florets. I don't think kalamata olives would be a good idea. Don't they have pits?
Kalamata olives come pitted; I get them at the olive bar in my local supermarket.
I have made similar skewers, and some of the other items I've used are marinated artichoke hearts, cherry tomatoes, bocconcini mozarella balls, fresh basil leaves, baby portabella mushrooms, zucchini, yellow summer squash, red and yellow bell pepper, small chunks of cooked marinated eggplant, etc.
Some of these I grill; others I don't.This message has been edited. Last edited by: aychihuahua,
Had this at a boardwalk place in Seaside several years ago. It was on menu as an appetizer but could have easily been a meal with a side salad and bread.
Grill portabello, topped with thin sliced grilled chicken, topped with sliced of roasted red pepper, and mozz melted over the whole thing.
Sounds delicious! Ok, for the food challenged, was it grilled or just marinated and served fresh like that?
Right of the jars and packages!
