Tomato And Mozzarella Caprese Skewers

Insalata Caprese is a simply prepared Italian salad made from vine-ripened tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, fresh basil, and olive oil. We've taken similar ingredients and threaded them onto wooden skewers to create these bursting-with-flavor handheld appetizers. Prep Time: 15 minutes Yield: 10 servings (serving size: 1 skewer) Ingredients 30 grape or cherry tomatoes 30 fresh basil leaves 4 ounces part-skim mozzarella cheese, cut into 30 (1/2-inch) cubes 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper Preparation Thread tomatoes, basil leaves, and mozzarella cheese cubes alternately onto 10 (6-inch) wooden skewers. Place skewers on a serving platter. Combine vinegar and oil in a small bowl; stir well with a whisk. Drizzle vinegar mixture evenly over skewers, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Serve immediately, or cover and chill until ready to serve. By: Oxmoor House Healthy Eating Collection, Oxmoor House, JANUARY 2006, Photo: Oxmoor House
