This Christmas Antipasto Meat and Cheese Wreath includes both savory and sweet selections and comes together in less than 20 minutes, making it a great option to keep the oven and stovetop clear during the hustle and bustle of the holidays.


Select ingredients:

  2. Arrange the skewers in a wreath-like shape on a large round platter.
  3. Tuck the rosemary sprigs under the skewers allowing them to stick out slightly to look like a wreath.
  4. Sprinkle the platter with dried cranberries and apricots.
  5. For cranberry vinaigrette, add the cranberry sauce, vinegar, oil, salt and pepper to a blender. Blend until smooth. Add enough water until the desired consistency is reached. Transfer to a small bowl and place in the center of the wreath.
  6. Store the platter covered in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
