Oxmoor House
Prep time 15 mins
Yield 10 servings (serving size: 1 skewer)
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.

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

How to Make It

  1. Thread tomatoes, basil leaves, and mozzarella cheese cubes alternately onto 10 (6-inch) wooden skewers. Place skewers on a serving platter.

  2. 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.
