Caprese Skewers

    15 minutes

    This little nibble is like a mini Caprese in every bite. So easy to prepare, yet impressive when beautifully laid out on a white serving platter.

    These are the best for a health conscious appetizer, but to help kick up the flavor, try adding and reducing balsamic vinegar. To reduce your vinegar, pour into a small saucepan; bring to a boil over medium-high heat constantly stirring to prevent scorching the vinegar. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until the vinegar has reduced by half. Set aside, and cool to room temperature. When ready to serve, drizzle over the appetizer. For different variations/flavor try adding garlic, red pepper flakes, etc., while reducing. Note: the vinegar will naturally sweeten as it reduces and will keep for months properly stored.  -  22 Sep 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Thank you, ALZ. These were delicious and oh so easy. I did, however, add to each toothpick a quarter of a slice of thinly cut prosciutto and drizzled the lot with garlic-infused olive oil to kick it up a bit.  -  22 Mar 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made this, but I used long skewers and repeated the pattern a couple of times then put them in a clear wide mouth vase filled with marbles for display it was the talk of the party, beautiful and delicious!  -  24 Mar 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
