- 10 mini wooden skewers
- 10-20 flat-leaf parsley or basil leaves

- pinch dried oregano for garnish
- Drizzle Early Harvest EVOO, optional
- Soak mini wooden skewers in water for one hour. Pat dry before using.
- Skewer the antipasto ingredients beginning perhaps with the basil or parsley, followed by the larger pieces like prosciutto or artichoke hearts. Place the Kalmata olive at the very top of the skewer. If you have more basil or parsley leaves, alternate them on the skewer.
- Arrange skewers on a serving platter or slate board. If you like, finish with a sprinkle of dried oregano and drizzle of Early Harvest extra virgin olive oil. Serve cold or at room temperature.
