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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected I honestly chose to make this for a recent wine & cheese party because I knew I wouldn't have time to bring anything more complicated. I wasn't sure how tasty this would be, but it looked pretty and it sounded easy. Well, these were a great success! They were gone in no time! I had a bottle of hot spicy oil which I drizzled over the skewers to season them. This oil had little bits of garlic and chili flakes in it. Make sure to use really sweet cherry tomatoes.
