For the skewers: Slide a salami round on the end of a 6-inch wooden skewer. Follow with a roasted red pepper ribbon, folded back on top of itself. Top with a cheese tortellini. Repeat, then finish with a mozzarella ball and tomato at the pointy end of the skewer. (Each skewer gets 2 salami rounds, 2 pepper ribbons, 2 tortellini, 1 mozzarella ball and 1 tomato). Repeat with the remaining skewers.
For the creamy Italian dip: Whisk together the mayo, buttermilk, Parmesan, parsley, Italian seasoning, granulated garlic and some salt and pepper in a bowl and serve with the skewers.
