Caprese Salad Skewers

Caprese Salad Skewers

  • Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 24 cherry tomatoes
  • 12 boccancini (fresh mozzarella balls)
  • 12 large fresh basil leaves
  • 12 skewers, about 4-inches long

Preparation:
Place the balsamic vinegar in small saucepan and bring to a slow simmer over medium heat. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until it reaches the consistency of maple syrup. You should have about 1/3 cup. Remove from the heat, allow to cool completely (it will thicken further) and transfer to a small bowl or shot glass.

Thread a cherry tomato onto each of the skewers. Fold the basil leaves accordion style and thread onto the skewers, followed by a boccancini and a second cherry tomato. Serve with the balsamic reduction for drizzling.

Makes 6 to 8 servings
