(PICKLED VEGETABLE SKEWER)
Prep time 10 mins – 24 picks
These easy tapas called Banderillas get their name from the barbed darts used during a bullfight! Fortunately, these banderillas aren’t dangerous and are a simple-to-prepare tapa.
1 box round toothpicks
1 jar gherkin pickles
1 jar cocktail onions
1 jar green olives (pitted & stuffed with pimento, garlic or anchovies)
1 can anchovies
1 can chunk white tuna (in oil)
1 can artichoke hearts (in water or oil, cut in halves)
1 jar banana wax peppers (or pepperoncini)
Optional: 12 quail eggs (boiled)
Traditional banderillas are made with the pickle, onion, olive, and tuna skewered onto the toothpick, however, you can mix and match the ingredients listed above.
Be careful to choose peppers such as the suggested Banana Wax Peppers or Pepperoncini and not a hot pepper, such as Jalapeño. Hot, spicy peppers will over-power the rest of the ingredients.
For something a bit different, add a hard-boiled quail egg to each toothpick!
