Caprese skewers

18 Dec

This recipe should make about 24 skewers and is perfect for a light snack, lunch or party!


1 cup (250 mL) balsamic vinegar

1 tbsp (15 mL) Dijon mustard

1 clove garlic, minced

1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt

1/4 tsp (1 mL) freshly ground pepper

1/3 cup (75 mL) extra virgin olive oil

24 x baby bocconcini

1 pt grape tomatoes (red and yellow)

2 x large bunches basil

24 x 6-inch (15 cm) bamboo skewers



1. In saucepan, over medium heat, bring balsamic vinegar to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes, or until reduced to ½ cup (125mL). It will thicken as it cools.
2. In a bowl, whisk together reduced vinegar, mustard, garlic, salt and pepper.

3. Slowly drizzle in oil, whisking to combine.

4. Trim basil leaf if necessary, and wrap each boconccini. Skewer wrapped cheese and one grape tomato (alternate red and yellow tomatoes if using, for contrast). Serve with dipping sauce.
