Recipe: Caprese Skewers w/ Balsamic Drizzle

  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • cherry or grape tomatoes
  • mini mozzarella cheese balls (could use regular sized ball, and cut into bite-sized pieces)
  • fresh basil leaves, cut in half if large
  • salt & pepper
  • toothpicks


1. Bring balsamic vinegar up to a boil in a saucepan, then lower heat to medium and simmer until it’s the consistency of very thin maple syrup, about 10 minutes. Pour into a bowl and let cool.

2. Cut tomatoes in half. Thread a mini mozzarella cheese ball, basil leaf (fold in half if large) and a tomato half onto a tooth pick. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Sprinkle with salt & pepper, then drizzle cooled balsamic reduction on top.
