This antipasto Christmas wreath is the perfect easy appetizer for any holiday party, and you don’t even have to cook anything. Just pick your favorite meats, cheeses and/ or veggies and assemble.
I don’t know about you, but our Christmas party schedule enough to make my head spin! It’s all fun and good, but when you have to think of some yummy treats to bring to many of them, it can get a little cray cray.
Enter this easy appetizer idea – the antipasto Christmas wreath.
No need to even touch an oven or stovetop. Just get a few sprigs of Rosemary as your base, and place them in a circle on a plate.
The look and smell already reminds me of Christmas!
I took this rosemary from the overgrown rosemary bush in my backyard. Side note: If you have a brown thumb, Rosemary might be your best bet for a garden victory. Mine survived the recent drought (60-something days without rain here in Birmingham). And how many times did I water it? Zero. And it lived!
Next, buy your favorite veggies, fruits and cheeses, and place them on top. I went with olives, tomatoes, artichoke hearts, cheddar cheese, marinated mozzarella bites, salami and thin wafer crackers.
I bought Marcona almonds too, and I forgot to put them on the plate! Oops!
Crackers and toothpicks make it easy for people to easily snag what looks good. And the bite combinations are endless.
You can totally customize this any way you wish with your favorites. Merry Christmas and happy holidays to y’all! I hope you enjoy this appetizer idea
