My husband hates olives – with a passion. Therefore, I don’t make many things with them but I love antipasto! Sometimes I just make a little bit for myself since I know no one else will eat it. This is a different take on the traditional version but it’s still delicious! Instead of using salami or pepperoni, I added some leftover smoked chicken and it worked great. Serve this as a side dish or it is also good on crackers or pita chips. Makes about 1 cup.
¼ cup cooked chicken, diced
¼ cup kalamata olives, sliced
¼ cup artichokes, chopped
¼ cup roasted red peppers, chopped
½ tsp white wine
1 tsp Italian dressing (I’ve used red wine vinaigrette also)
- In a small bowl, combine chicken, olives, artichokes, and peppers.
- Pour wine and dressing over mixture and stir until combined.
- Refrigerate at least 30 minutes before serving.
