Easy Antipasto Kabobs Recipe

Easy Antipasto Kabobs Recipe

“This is one elegant, easy recipe people really seem to like at every party. I found a marinade recipe that wasn’t so heavy on olive oil and modified it to my taste. The kabobs are a snap to assemble. You don’t even need to turn on the oven.” —Kendra Doss, Kansas City, Missouri
