Bocconcini and Tomato Skewers

A creative variation on the classic caprese salad, this recipe combines tomatoes, fresh mozzarella cheese and basil into an easy and delicious appetizer. Bocconcini are small nuggets of fresh mozzarella.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 0 minutes
Servings: 6

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. red and yellow heirloom Toy Box or cherry tomatoes
  • 1 lb. fresh bocconcini
  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Directions:

Thread 3 tomatoes, 3 bocconcini, and 3 basil leaves onto a bamboo skewer, alternating the ingredients. Repeat with remaining ingredients; you should have about 10 skewers.

Arrange the skewers on a large platter and season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle the red pepper flakes on top and drizzle with the olive oil. Serve immediately. Serves 4 to 6.
