Today is your lucky day - you get a double dose of Handy Eats recipes! As you'll see in my previous post, I was fortunate enough to be asked to cater the Human Rights Campaign's Steering Committee Holiday shindig. It was a lovely event, and these skewers were a huge hit! These are very easy to assemble, but can be a little time consuming depending on how many you're making, so just allow yourself some time for that - or make it a party and invite some friends or family to help you! For the recipe below, I used some bulk ingredients that I bought from Costco, so this made a hefty amount. I did not count, but this allowed for about 3 platter refills, each platter likely holding about 30 skewers. Enjoy!
NOTE: I used the marinated mozzarella balls from Costco, which became quite messy with the olive oil they're stored in. I'd make sure to drain the mozzarella balls prior to assembling these.
1 tub mozzarella balls, drained from juices, and cut in half if too large
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved if too big
1 pint yellow, cherry sized, tomatoes, halved if too big
3 packages of fresh basil, stemmed and torn into bite size pieces
balsamic glaze for drizzling
4" wooden skewers
Thread each skewer with a half of mozzarella ball, basil, yellow tomato, basil, another half of mozzarella ball, basil, and a red tomato. Continue this process until you're done with the ingredients. When in your desired platter, drizzle with the balsamic glaze. Enjoy!
