5 Minute Antipasto Skewers
Now that the holiday season is here, it seems like life is busier than ever! Between holiday parties, school events, neighborhood get-togethers, and family holiday traditions, this time of year has so much fun packed into it. And every celebration needs some delicious food, right? As much as I love to cook, sometimes I just really don’t have the time or energy to come up with an elaborate appetizer.

I started with some delicious pre-made appetizers from the freezer section, combined them with a few fresh ingredients, assembled them on skewers, and added some festive ribbon to finish things off. They’re fun to look at, even more fun to eat, and only take a few minutes to assemble!
