IMG_E0866.jpg

Ingredients

  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 8 ounce mini mozzarella balls
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • You will need 16 4” bamboo skewers

Directions

  1. Prepare your balsamic reduction first by pouring 1 cup of balsamic vinegar into a small saucepan over medium low heat.
  2. Cook, stirring occasionally, until vinegar has reduced to about half a cup (this will take about 15 minutes or so).
  3. Allow balsamic reduction to cool before drizzling over your caprese skewers.
  4. To prepare caprese skewers, spear the top of one tomato and slide it up 1” from the top of the skewer.
  5. Take a small basil leaf and fold it in half. Spear the basil leaf and slide it up against the tomato.
  6. Repeat with a mozzarella ball, and then repeat with another tomato, basil leaf, and mozzarella ball.
  7. Drizzle with balsamic reduction.

Enjoy!
