ANTIPASTO KABOBS – A FUN APPETIZER FOR KIDS

This post is in partnership with Olives from Spain. All opinions are my own.

Antipasto is defined as an appetizer generally consisting of olives, anchovies, cheeses, and meats. Olives from Spain contain many nutritional benefits! They are a great source of minerals such as calcium, magnesium, and iron and contribute to good digestion.

Plus, with only 150 calories per 100g, they make a great health-conscious snack!

With 3 varieties, Olives from Spain can be used in many different dishes.

FLESHY GORDAL

This variety is commonly served as a table olive. Perfect for popping in your mouth because of its irresistible flavor. This makes it a great option for appetizers and snacking.

MYSTERIOUS HOJIBLANCA

This variety has a dark color and leaves an almost almond-like aftertaste. Its hint of bitterness makes it great for recipes like stews and marinades.

VERSATILE MANZANILLA

This variety of Olives from Spain doesn’t contain any bitterness and is often used in stuffed recipes since the pit is super easy to remove.

Food on a stick is definitely fun! My kids tried olives yesterday for the first time and I can't say that they loved them... but I'm sure they'll try again one day!
