Antipasto Skewers {a fun & easy party food}

Antipasto Skewers from Lemony Thyme1

I love a party where everyone brings an appetizer to share.  Such a great way to sample new recipes.  When we get the whole family together to celebrate a birthday this has become our favorite kind of meal.  I made Antipasto Skewers to share at our last get together.  They were fun to eat and easy to make.

Lay out all your ingredients in the order you want to skewer them and let the assembly begin.

What’s your favorite Appetizer or Finger Food?  I’m always looking for recipe inspiration and would love to recreate YOUR favorites.
