Tomato, Mozzarella, & Basil Skewers

Good morning, aaaaaand it’s Monday again. I hope everyone had a great weekend. I am exhausted from the Katy Perry concert last night. It was awesome!!!!!

Saturday night I went to a birthday BBQ for my friend and made these tomato, mozzarella, and basil skewers. The basil in my garden is growing like CRAZY so I thought it would be fun to use it in a dish to share with my friends.

These skewers are easy to make and you can even prepare them the night before you plan on serving them. I used all of my ingredients from Trader Joe’s except for the basil. 
Tomato, Mozzarella, and Basil Skewers
ingredients:
1 oz of cherry tomatoes
1 container of marinated mozzarella balls
5-6 fresh basil leaves
10-12 wooden skewers
salt and pepper to taste
directions:
Wash the tomatoes and dry well. Thread the tomatoes and mozzarella onto the skewer in whatever order you like. As you can see below, I alternated the tomatoes and mozzarella so the red and white colors alternate. 
Once you have finished threading the tomato and mozzarella on all of the skewers drizzle the skewers with the marinate from the mozzarella. Make sure to whisk the marinate before so all of the flavors are incorporated. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Last, top the skewers with fresh basil. 
I cut the basil leaves into ribbons for a fancy look. Stack the basil leaves, roll them tightly, then cut across the rolled leaves with a sharp knife producing ribbons.
fancy huh?

This would make the perfect appetizer or side dish for any party or BBQ. This is quick, easy, and no cooking required.

Have a great Monday!
