Caprese Skewers

“Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.  Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.” – Miles Kington

Today we’re making Caprese Skewers as an appetizer for a party we’re hosting.  I think there’s cherry tomatoes in the basket…. we were picking other veggies too – we usually come out with a small bounty!

My garden only gave half the tomatoes I needed so I subbed with a colorful variety from the grocery store.  It PAINS me to buy the same veggies I’m growing but HEY… what can ya do?

This might be my FAVORITE appetizer to make.  Fresh tomatoes, sweet basil, creamy delicious cheese.. and a tangy glaze!

I’ve been making it since I was younger….

Like “before I had Owen” young….

Discovered while bartending at a Wine and Blues bar in Port Townsend, Washington….

At the veryyy tip of the Northwestern Peninsula….

On hiatus with my best friend Jessica.

But that’s a story for another time. 🙂

Balsamic GLAZE! A tangy reduction that’ll blow your mind!

This is my SECRET INGREDIENT!!^^

I guess it’s not a secret if you can find it in the olive oil section at your local grocery store (King Soopers in Colorado).  It’s a balsamic reduction and it’s toooo dieee forrrrrr.

On a regular toothpick or a fancy skewer toothpick (**sips diet pepsi with my pinky in the air**), skew one cherry tomato, one basil leaf (mine were folded in half) and a cube or ball of mozzarella cheese.

Then drizzle it with either balsamic vinegar, or the glaze I showed you up top.  Simple to make and delicious to eat!!  It’s also cheap and will impress your guests!  Give it a try 🙂
