    Caprese Skewers

    Caprese is a classic appetizer because the combination of creamy mozzarella, fresh basil, juicy tomato and savory balsamic is just too perfect to pass up. Prepare this delectable appetizer in a very cute, bite-sized version. Instead of thick slices of cheese, purchase bite-sized "pearls" at your local market, along with fresh basil, cherry tomatoes, balsamic, olive oil and toothpicks. Wrap a single basil leaf around the tomato and cheese, puncture with a toothpick and drizzle with balsamic and olive oil. Get the recipe here
