When my boyfriend and I first moved into together, we had a house warming party that was all skewers (super fun and really easy clean-up, just make sure you have garbage cans handy). The biggest hit of the party was the Caprese Skewers, a simple and colorful appetizer.
Fresh Mozzarella balls (roughly the same size as the Cherry Tomatoes)
Olive Oil (I love Sciabica Basil olive oil - they are the oldest olive oil producer in California)
Balsamic Vinegar (optional)
salt and pepper
1. Soak the skewers in water for an hour
2. Chop up the Basil
3. Skewer tomato, mozzarella and piece of basil. Repeat
4. Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper.
Voila, Caprese Skewers!
