I made these yummy caprese skewers back in November at the game night. They were so simple to make!You only need four ingredients:
- Cherry tomatoes or another small variety
- Fresh basil
- Small mozzarella balls
- Balsamic reduction – this means the balsamic is thick and less runny than your run of the mill balsamic vinegar. You can buy this in stores or make it yourself. I got mine from a lovely coworker. 🙂
The first thing you do is slice the ends off your tomatoes so you can sit them upright without falling over. I put the toothpicks in first but quickly found out that that made everything harder… though it did make for a pretty picture!The reason it made it harder was that it took longer to put on the basil and the mozzarella balls. In the future, I’d put the tomatoes on the plate after cutting them, tear up bits of basil into a pile and then while holding the basil and mozzarella on top of the tomato – spear all of them at once with the toothpick. It would save so much time and effort!This is what it should look like when done – whether you use the toothpicks the most efficient way or not. Ha!Lastly, you drizzle all the caprese skewers with the balsamic reduction for a pretty and sweet result!
