Bite-sized foods are a necessity to easy entertaining. But let’s face it, the presentation is often lacking. Honestly, how many times have you been at a party where cheese is served with toothpicks and olives are piled in a small bowl? Today I’ve teamed up with Pearls® Specialties to challenge you to put a tiny bit more effort into your snacking presentation with this ridiculously easy tutorial. And since Easter is just around the corner, I think you might find my Jalapeño Stuffed Olives & Herb Wreath has arrived just in the nick of time.

A ‘wreath’ presentation is such a simple fix to boring appetizers. It allows for all your snacks to be served on a single plate (less cleanup!), while impressing guests with your killer hosting skills. Here’s what you’ll need…

Jalapeño Stuffed Olives & Herb Wreath

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 jar of Pearls® Specialties Jalapeño Stuffed Queen Olives
  • Fresh Basil (10-15 large leaves)
  • Fresh Rosemary (5-10 sprigs)
  • Fresh Dill (5-10 sprigs)
  • 1/2 cup of smoked Gouda cheese (cubed)
  • 1/2 cup of Colby & Monterey Jack cheese (cubed)
  • 1/2 cup of spiced sausage (cubed)
  • Garnish: Mini Spring flowers

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Layer the herbs in the wreath shape on a cake stand, starting with the basil.
  2. Place the olives, cheese, and sausage decoratively along the herb wreath.
  3. Garnish with mini Spring flowers and that’s it! Enjoy!

Pearls® Specialties line of stuffed olives are a fantastic addition to your Springtime entertaining table. The brand offers premium snacking options, including Pitted Kalamata, Garlic Stuffed Olives, and Blue Cheese Stuffed Olives. I personally love a little spice in my life, so I’ve added the Pearls® Specialties Jalapeño Stuffed Queen Olives as the star of my wreath. And as their tagline says, life is better with Pearls®. I also like this brand because they have been family owned for 75 years and work with farmers in Greece to harvest the finest olives. Okay, now to assembly. Start with the herbs and layer from there…

  1. This looks so festive, & I can almost smell the rosemary through my screen! Mmmm. 😀 Thanks for the lovely idea, I never thought to make a wreath using olives!

  2. I previously commented about what an interesting idea this is, but I also wanted to mention I think this would be great for holidays. Someone already commented about Thanksgiving and I think it would be perfect for that. Thanks for sharing!

  3. That is an awesome and entertaining way of having appetizers. I would like to preserve the wreath and hang it on my kitchen wall. LOL

  4. This is so simply yet so elegant. I need ideas for Easter and this is definitely a recipe I’ll be using. Thank you for the beautiful pictures and recipe!
