Thanks again,
Congrats for her Birthday. It is a nice adult "tapa" cocktail party dish as well. Enjoy.

P.S. I like antipasto skewers, as well.

Two different Salads on Skewers For 6 + 4 children


Wow ... Thanks so much for your assistance ... I love the Antipasto Skewer idea. This is fanstastic ... and thanks for wishing Nathalia a wonderful birthday.

What are your combinations for the Skewers ?

There are: The Vet and I, Nathalia and Giovanni, Naia, my older daughter and her husband Daniel plus 4 children who eat a children´s portion and then baby Anthony Luca who is only 9 months ... So, 6 adults --- How many skewers would work ?

Great idea, and I would also employ the other idea, I am crazy for; the skewered salad with croutons, or Panzanella Skewers from the link you had sent.

Thanks in advance for your contribution and input, and how many skewers should I need for the two salads; one with croutons and the antipasti;
as I truly appreciate your posts.
