Prep Time:


Ingredients

  • 1 pt. grape tomatoes, halved
  • 10 to 14 fresh small mozzarella cheese balls, cut into thirds*
  • 32 (4-inch) wooden skewers**
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 thinly sliced fresh basil leaves
  • Kosher salt and pepper to taste

Preparation

  1. 1. Thread 1 tomato half, 1 piece of cheese, and another tomato half onto each skewer. Place skewers in a shallow serving dish.
  2. 2. Whisk together oil and next 3 ingredients. Drizzle oil mixture over skewers; sprinkle with basil and salt and pepper to taste.
  3. *1 (8-oz.) package fresh mozzarella, cut into 1/2-inch cubes, may be substituted.
  4. **Wooden picks may be substituted.
Note:

Grape tomatoes vary in size from week to week at the grocery store; some pints we found had only 24 while others had more than 40. Good news, you should still have enough mozzarella balls because they are generally sold in 8-oz. containers that have more than enough.
