Simplicity is key here! Modelled after the famous Caprese salad, the 4 components of these skewers are a handful of fresh basil, grape or cherry tomatoes, and fresh mozzarella.
Just 4 ingredients plus a skewer and you have yourself an appetizer that’s simple, refreshing, and bursting with flavour!
Balsamic Vinegar: The sweet but tangy flavour of balsamic vinegar is a must here. This gets cooked down to create a thick, delicious balsamic glaze.
Cherry Mozzarella Balls: Drain and pat dry before adding to your skewers.
Tomatoes: Cherry or grape tomatoes both work! We’re just going for bite-sized here.
Fresh Basil Leaves: Add a pop of minty flavour between the layers.
Serves: 2-3 People
Prep Time: 15 Mins
- Elef Cherry Mozzarella
- Balsamic Vinegar
- Cherry Tomatoes
- Basil leaves
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Himalayan Pink Salt
To prepare Caprese skewers, take a small basil leaf (about 1” — if your basil leaves are large then cut them in half first, otherwise the flavour will overwhelm the skewer) and fold it in half. Spear the basil leaf and slide it up against the tomato.
Spear the top of one tomato and slide it up 1” from the top of the skewer.
Repeat: Repeat with a mozzarella ball, and then repeat with another basil leaf, cherry tomato, and mozzarella ball.
- Add Drizzle and Serve: Just before serving, drizzle with balsamic reduction. Enjoy!
