This is a classic dish (the tasty pairing of tomato and mozzarella) with an adorable presentation—perfect for a snack or party pass-around. If you don’t want to make your own balsamic drizzle, you can buy a thick pre-made balsamic glaze or use any favorite vinaigrette dressing.
- Prep time
- Total Time
For the honey balsamic drizzle:
- • ½ cup balsamic vinegar
- • ½ tablespoon honey
For the tomato-mozzarella skewers:
- • 1 cup basil leaves, torn into bite-sized pieces
- • 40 pieces (about 1 cup) fresh mozzarella pearls
- • 20 pieces (about 1 cup) multi-colored grape tomatoes, halved
- • 40 large toothpicks or thin skewers
To make the glaze, combine the balsamic and honey in a small saucepan and bring to a gentle boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for about 10 minutes, or until the balsamic is thick, syrupy, and has reduced by half. Set aside until ready to use.
To assemble the skewers, thread a piece of basil through the toothpick followed by a mozzarella pearl and tomato half. Continue until you have 40 pieces and all of the ingredients are used up. Transfer the skewers to a serving platter and drizzle over the balsamic glaze, or serve on the side as a dip.
