These would be the perfect appetizer for a party, they're very elegant looking! Plus they're already skewered up in a little handheld treat. So easy and delicious!
Grape tomatoes (I used about half a carton, around 20 little tomaters)
Mozzarella (I used about half a block, cubed)
Pinch kosher salt
Fresh ground black pepper
1 tsp. balsamic vinegar
2 tsp. olive oil
Step 1: Take your block of mozzarella, cut it in half and cut that half into little bite sized cubes (or any shape your heart desires!)
Step 2: To build the skewer: string the basil leaf through one side of the toothpick
|Yes, I have clue sparkly nail polish this week :-D|
Add a piece of mozzarella on the end, string the other half of the basil leaf behind the mozzarella (some of my leaves were too small for this and were just strung through the top of the toothpick, not the bottom- no big deal still look gorg!)
Continue with desired amount of skewers and place on a plate.
|On this blue plate they looked very patriotic! Didn't even mean to do that...!|
