Caprese Salad Skewers

27 Feb

Last week the college and career group hosted a valentines banquet for the married couples in our church. One of the appetizers we made were these caprese salad skewers. They are SUPER simple to make and they are very good!caprese salads

1 package tooth picks
1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes
2 lbs of fresh mozzarella (bocconcini which are small balls of fresh mozzarella)
Bunch of fresh basil
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Quality Balsamic Vinegar
Salt and Pepper

 

Be sure to get quality ingredients as this is a simple dish that should be fresh and simple. The freshest ingredients will bring the best flavor. Assembly is very simple. First wash and dry your tomatoes and basil. We chopped our tomatoes in half so they would fit on the toothpicks better. If you’d rather not chop the tomatoes you could get larger toothpicks or skewers instead. Skew the tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and basil on the tooth picks. The drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. It’s that simple!
