Antipasto and Cheddar-Pickle Skewers

Perfect for a cocktail party or just hangin’ out in front of the TV.  These little bites are a nice pre-dinner snack or if you eat enough of them, they will be dinner.

What’s great is that all these ingredients keep wonderfully in the fridge, meaning you have something available for the impromptu party that might start up at your house.  The marriage of flavors work well and create their own fun flavors when eaten in one big bite.

I have to say, our fave was the pickle-cheddar-onion combo.  It sounds so simple but was surprisingly delish.
