Can life slow down please? We just sped through January and it feels that February is flying by just as quickly.
The big thing happening right now is that we are in full gear with cookie sales for Amber’s troop. Our troop is doing so well with the sales- it’s so awesome! Autumn has been excited to have lemonade stands to pair with the new lemon flavored cookies. Next weekend starts our cookie sales at places like grocery stores and Walmart.
Tip: When you see troops out there selling cookies, please support them! A LOT of work goes into selling cookies. For both the girls and the parents!
Even though we are busy, we are looking forward to some great upcoming parties and game nights with friends. These Easy Antipasto Bites are definitely going to make an appearance because everyone will love them.
Easy Antipasto Bites
Planning the menu for parties is my favorite thing about hosting gathering. (Surely, the pre-party and post-party cleaning is my least favorite!)
I am always trying to create and serve fun things that people will enjoy as a group, like a great batch of guacamole. Or, I will create a fun snack that can be enjoyed individually, like the Pepperoni Pizza Roll Ups that I shared last month.
I think that these Easy Antipasto Bites are a fun way to create an individual snack that was inspired by a big party platter.
Antipasto is so great because it is jam packed full of delicious flavors and textures. You get a variety of things from fresh vegetables, pickled vegetables, meats, and cheeses. Plus, I love that everyone’s antipasto platter is so different too.
Well, I made sure that these Easy Antipasto Bites covered all the bases with the tangy medley of artichoke hearts, giardiniera, and tomatoes. . That mixture is accompanied by hearty pieces of salami and delicate pearls of mozzarella.
The next time you are in the refrigerated deli section of your neighborhood grocery store, grab a package of Margherita® Hard Salami. It is so great because it has a superior flavor to other brands. Margherita is known for their flavorful, high quality products because their unique spice-forward flavor profile sets them apart from other Italian brands.
They are wonderful for topping on pizza and incorporating into recipes, just like this. If you are looking for more recipes, then check out the great ones HERE.
Plus, you won’t be able to resist snacking on it right out of the bag too. All of the Margherita Cracker Cut products, like their Pepperoni and Genoa Salami, are great for all snacking occasions.
I think this is a great appetizer because it is delicious, easy to make, and looks so pretty. I think they look like butterflies with salami wings. ha!
Easy Antipasto Bites are the perfect addition to your appetizers when enjoying game night with friends or having a big, fun party. Everyone will love them so you’ll see them disappear quickly!

- 1/2 Cup giardiniera
- 1 Cup grape tomatoes
- 30 mozzarella pearls
- 2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 2 Tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
- black pepper
- Crisp the phyllo cups according to the packaged instructions. Set aside.
- Quarter the pieces of the salami. Set aside.
- Finely chop the artichoke hearts and giardiniera, and tomatoes. They should be chopped to a fine, consistent size. Combine together and mix well.
- To assemble the Antipasto Bites, scoop some of the antipasto mix into the cups. Add 2 pieces of the salami and 1 mozzarella pearl to each cup.
- Sprinkle with some black pepper and the fresh basil, then lightly drizzle with the olive oil. Transfer to a serving platter
This can be served as a dip instead of filling the cups. Instead of quartering the salami, cut it to a consistent size of the rest of the mixture. Serve with crostini.
The phyllo cups can be found in the freezer section of your grocery store.
