Tomato, Mozzarella, and Basil Skewers

Tomato, Mozzarella, and Basil Skewers Recipe

This is so easy to make.  Can you tell I'm all about easy recipes?  It's also a  great healthy appetizer for a pic nic or barbecue.  I had these as an appetizers for my wedding, so they can be fancy too.  You really can't wrong.

Tomato, Mozzarella, Basil Skewers Recipe:

cherry tomatoes
mozzarella balls
fresh basil leaves
olive oil
salt and pepper

1)  I don't like to measure for recipes, so I put equal parts olive oil and balsamic in a container with pinches of salt and pepper and soak the mozzarella balls for 1 hour.  Or you can soak them overnight like I did for more flavor.

2) How many skewers it will make depends on how many you want.  Just double your mozzarella balls because you will be cutting the cherry tomatoes in half.  For the amount you see above I used about 40 mozzarella balls and 20 cherry tomatoes.

3)  Pic a pattern and skew the mozzarella balls, half tomatoes, and basil leaves.

You are finished!  For a daintier look you can use tooth pics.  Everyone said the mozzarella balls looked like mushrooms, but I told them it was mozzarella!  They taste great!
