Spiralized Bell Pepper Antipasto

Yesterday, I gave you a spiralized dish to bring to football parties.

Today, I give you a slightly more chic dish to bring to fall cocktail parties.

I guess I’m really into partying right now?

Spiralized Bell Pepper Antipasto

I’m the friend that always gets texted, “I’m going to [insert festive event here], I need to bring an appetizer or salad, what should I bring?!”

I always panic – it’s a lot of pressure! In the summer, I usually defer to my Italian Zucchini Pasta Salad. In the winter, I am going to now defer to my Shredded Brussels Sprouts, Kale and Pear Noodle Salad. Sometimes, I suggest a pear and brie crostini or some prosciutto wrapped asparagus – you can never go wrong there.

Spiralized Bell Pepper Antipasto

Now, I have a new recipe I can recommend: spiralized bell pepper antipasto!

This dish is great, because it’s made with mainly pantry items: canned artichokes, canned olives, balsamic vinegar and dried spices. The only produce involved are bell peppers and fresh basil.

The flavors are so robust! When you roast anything, flavors intensify, and that’s especially true here with the artichokes – they take on a nutty, savory taste that’s extra compatible with the provolone cheese.

This makes four small appetizer portions, but turn it into a meal by adding in a couple extra cups of greens and adding in a protein, like roasted chicken or even something as simple as chickpeas.

Now, all you’ll need is a LBD and a party to bring this delicious dish to!

  • Your Italian zucchini pasta salads is one of my favorites. Can't wait to try this one!
  • This looks very good. I am not sure how to sprizlize a bell pepper and guidance on the web site? Thanks
    • You can find a how to video on our YouTube channel! YouTube.com/Getinspiralized
  • I can't wait to try this. Looks delicious. Where does the balsamic vinegar come in though? I didn't see that in the actual recipe.
  • You don't have to wait for a party to make this recipe, this dish is the party! I am excited to try it out. I will have to add the inspiralizer to my Christmas wish list. The spiralizer I own was not easy to use and it actually cut me! Yours looks waaaaay better.
  • I second the above commenter - balsamic is mentioned in the post but is nowhere to be found in the recipe. Revision please? Excited to try the recipe.
  • I agree, no mention of balsamic in instructions. I assume it is mixed with the olive oil and drizzled over dish?
  • When I first saw this colorful dish I was inspired to try it but already had my menu set for dinner with friends, so I did a little variation. I spiralized the bell pepper (for the first time), one red, one orange, roasted as instructed, and served them as a colorful and tasty topping for spiralized zucchini with pesto. It was a big hit... thanks for the inspiration! I'll try the antipasto version soon.
  • You mention garlic powder in the recipe but oregano in the ingredients - which is it? Thanks!
