Caprese Skewers

We did a wine tasting a few weeks ago and since I had a lot of grape tomatoes from my tomato plant, I thought this would be a nice light appetizer to serve.  They were very easy to make, and the plate was empty at the last of the night so everyone liked them (including us!).

Caprese Skewers
From: Elizabeth's Dutch Oven
Prep Time: 20 min

Small grape tomatoes
Fresh Mozzarella balls (small pearl ones), cut in half
Fresh Basil Leaves, washed, dried, and cut in half
Olive Oil
Balsamic Vinegar
Salt and Pepper

1. Wash and dry tomatoes and basil leaves.  Put one tomato on a toothpick, then fold over 1/2 a basil leaf and put it on the toothpick, then a mozzarella half.  Repeat until you have the desired amount of skewers.

2. Place on serving dish and sprinkle with salt and pepper and drizzle with Olive oil and balsamic vinegar right before serving.
