Caprese Skewers
  • 2-3 pints of sweet grape/cherry tomatoes (red or you can mix colors), washed
  • 1 lb. round of smoked fresh mozzarella cheese
  • 1 large bunch of fresh basil, leaves pulled off
  • Sea salt, fresh ground black pepper
  • 1-3 bottles Wishbone Balsamic Vinegar or your favorite type
  1. In a bowl, place the cherry tomatoes and cut the cheese in slices but the same size as your tomatoes.
  2. Season and drizzle some of the balsamic vinegar and let marinade overnight if you like. It is not necessary to marinade. I find it has a better flavor if you marinade it.
  3. When ready to serve, take toothpicks and start by sliding a basil leaf onto it. Then, place a piece of cheese then the tomato. It will look like the Italian flag.
  4. On a serving platter, I like to lay out red tip lettuce leaves and make sure the outer leaves are on the outside of the platter.
  5. Start laying the toothpick skewers in a circular pattern. You can also place these in any way you like. This makes a great presentation.
  6. Drizzle additional dressing once the platter is done. Serve.
*****This recipe comes from my friend, Margret Edwards. She is very creative when it comes to presenting food. I love her style. This is a great dish to serve around Christmas because of the colors and it looks like a Christmas wreath. Play with it and make your own designs. You can add olives, capers, mushrooms, etc. Great appetizer!
