 1 (14 oz.) artichoke hearts, drained and quartered- not marinated

 1 (6 ounces) whole pitted black olives, drained

 1 (3.5 oz) pepperoni slices (1 ½ inch rounds)

1 package 8 inch wooden skewers or 6” mini skewers

18 oz. Bottle Newman’s Oil and Vinegar Dressing

 1- 8 oz. Package of Monterey Jack or Farmer’s Cheese- cubed  as desired

 1 pint Cherry Tomatoes, halved


  1. Prepare tortellini according to package directions. Drain and Cool.
  2. Place tortellini, hearts, olives, and pepperoni onto skewers.
  3. Place skewers in a 9 x 13 inch pan and pour dressing to coat.
  4. Cover and chill 8 hours, turning occasionally.


Tailgating Tip:  Transport skewers in large zip plastic bag, keeping the marinade covering the appetizers. Cover the tip of the skewer with tortellini or food so the sharp ends of skewers will not puncture the bag.  Keep refrigerated until serving time.
