Easy Caprese Skewer Bites Recipe with Salami & Artichokes

These delicious antipasto skewers are the perfect choice for an easy appetizer any time of year. I made them in this combination for the first time last week, and now my family can't get enough of this great appetizer – they've been asking for more! So, I felt like I need to share the recipe. You can find all the simple ingredients you need at your local grocery store, making it a convenient and tasty option for any gathering. 

While there are many cold appetizer skewer recipes out there, my version of these caprese appetizer skewers is a standout with its beautiful salami roses, creamy mini mozzarella balls (or cubes), aromatic basil leaves, juicy cherry tomatoes and marinated artichokes. For the best flavor and best results, make sure to use fresh ingredients, high-quality mozzarella and sweet, ripe tomatoes. Thread all these tasty ingredients onto small skewers for a fresh and flavorful experience that's both easy and impressive.

These skewers are a great way to enjoy the fresh flavor of a classic caprese salad, complemented by salami and artichokes, in a bite-sized form. Give this easy recipe a try, and savor these tasty bites that are bound to be a big hit at your next gathering!


  • 20 slices salami
  • 10 baby mozzarella cheese balls (or bite-sized mozzarella cubes)
  • 10 basil leaves (fresh)
  • 10 tomatoes (cherry tomatoes or grape tomatoes, sweet)
  • 6 marinated artichoke hearts (cut in half)
Prep time:
15 minutes
Yield: 10 skewers | Prep time: 15 minutes |


If you have any leftovers, the best way to store these little skewers is by placing them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Alternatively, you can cover the serving plate with a piece of plastic wrap and store them that way.


1. Get all the ingredients ready.
Ingredients for Italian antipasto caprese skewers with salami and artichokes.
Make salami roses for your skewers. Take two slices of salami and place them slightly overlapping each other. Fold them in half to create a semi-circle. Then, carefully roll them up to form a rose-like shape. Thread the salami rose onto a skewer, making sure it's secure.
2. Follow the salami with a bite-sized cube of fresh mozzarella or a mini mozzarella ball. Next, add a fresh basil leaf. If your fresh basil leaves are large, you can fold large leaves in half to fit neatly on the skewer. Thread a cherry tomato onto the skewer. To complete the skewer, add a piece of marinated artichoke heart. Continue these steps for the remaining wooden skewers.
