Caprese Salad Skewers
Servings – 4
Prep Time – 20 Minutes
Cook Time – 30 Minutes
Cherry or grape tomatoes
Mozzarella balls, or square chunks
1 cup balsamic vinegar*
salt and pepper
Assemble, tomatoes, basil (roll from one end to the other), and mozzarella balls on medium-sized toothpicks.
Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Add one cup of balsamic vinegar to a sauce pan over medium heat. Once it comes to a boil, set on simmer for about 10-15 minutes until it reduces to a syrup consistency. You can check by dipping a spoon in the balsamic and if it covers the back of it, it's done.
As it cools, it will thicken a bit more then drizzle on top of caprese salad skewers.
You can also make a larger version but using tomatoes on the vine, fresh mozzarella balls from the deli section of your local supermarket, and fresh basil. Slicing tomatoes and mozzarella into 1/2" thick slices. Place in layering rotation, tomato, basil leaf, and mozzarella slice. Swirl olive oil and balsamic glaze over the top, sprinkle with salt and pepper.
