A simple and beautiful Christmas starter
Today is the day. Mike has his company Christmas party and I look forward to it every year. It’s the only time when I, as the boss’s wife, get to know all his employees, including his spouses, and have a chance to interact with them.



30 to 40 (4-inch) skewers

1 (6 ounce) packaged thin sliced salami*

1 (15 ounce) jar quartered artichoke hearts (in water)

1 (16 ounce) jar sweet cherry peppers, drained, seeded and halved

1 (8 ounce) container Fresh Mozzarella Ciliegine

1 pint cherry tomatoes


pitted olives**

fresh basil

fresh rosemary sprigs

balsamic glaze, for serving (optional)

Italian dressing, for serving (optional)



Arrange the ingredients in bowls.
Mix them and thread some of them on skewers. I usually stop when I have finished the salami and mozzarella.
Place the skewers on a round plate in the shape of a wreath and layer them 2 or 3 times on top of each other.
Use small rosemary twigs and place them randomly in different places in the wreath.
