Caprese Salad Skewers With Balsamic Glace

I guess you could also call this finger food “Caprese On A Stick” never the less it is an easy and delicious recipe.

You can prepare it in advance they look pretty and taste delicious. I know that most people who make these Finger Foodies use balsamic vinegar and that is also the common recipe but I like to use balsamic glaze.

Balsamic glace present the Caprese salad skewers better and I prefer the taste over balsamic vinegar.

Ingredients

 

12 small fresh basil leaves

24 mozzarella balls, drained well

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

1/4 cup purchased balsamic glaze (or balsamic vinegar)

24 short bamboo or other fun picks

Instructions

 

To assemble: Thread onto each pick in this order: a tomato, a basil leaf, a mozzarella ball, and another tomato.

Place assembled picks on a platter and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Drizzle with balsamic glaze right before serving. Serve any extra balsamic glaze in a tiny bowl for dipping or with a spoon for drizzling.

Chef’s Note

 

Balsamic glaze is found in many well-stocked grocery stores and specialty food shops. If you are unable to find it, then you can make it easier. Combine 3/4 cup balsamic vinegar and 2 Tbsp sugar in a small pan. Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat. Reduce heat to low and slowly simmer for 10 to 12 minutes to reduce liquid to about 1/4 cup or a light syrup texture. Watch carefully so as not to over-reduce. Store covered at room temperature until needed.
