Alcoeur Apron's Mini Caprese Skewers
You will need 32 4-inch bamboo skewers, or something similar. We took normal skewers and cut them into 4-inch pieces. Extra long toothpicks would work as well.
8 ounce container of pearl size mozzarella balls (~100 per container)
2 pints cherry tomatoes, halved
1 large bunch fresh basil leaves
Extra virgin olive oil
Salt and fresh ground black pepper
Pitted kalamata olives, halved
thinly sliced prosciutto or salami
Balsamic reduction, for drizzle at end
Thread the ingredients onto the skewers in alternating patterns: mozzarella ball, tomato, basil, mozzarella, tomato, basil, etc. Alternate in additional items if available: basil, mozzarella, tomato, prosciutto, olive, etc.
Once all skewers are fitted to your liking, lay them on a platter. Drizzle them generously with olive oil, season liberally with salt and pepper, and finish with a gently drizzle of the balsamic reduction.
Serve and enjoy!
