Recipe Monday: Tomato, Basil, and Mozzarella With A Balsamic Vinegar Reduction




Hello again lovelies! Christmas is just around the corner so I wanted to share with you a simple appetizer recipe that is sure to please at your holiday table. Not only is it very easy, but it's also healthy and colorful. The red, white, and green of this dish make it the perfect Christmas bite! I hope you enjoy these tomato, basil, and mozzarella skewers and they are a hit at your holiday feast! 



Tomato, Basil and Mozzarella Skewers 

With A Balsamic Vinegar Reduction

 

  Ingredients:

  • 20 mozzarella balls, marinated
  • 20 basil leaves
  • 20 cherry tomatoes
  •  juice of one lemon
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1 cup of balsamic vinegar
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 20 skewers

 

Directions:

Place the sugar and balsamic vinegar into a small pot and heat over medium heat. Cook until sugar is dissolves and the vinegar starts to reduce and become thick, much like a syrup. Remove from heat and let cool. Start assembling skewers by starting with a mozzarella ball, then a basil leaf, and ending with a cherry tomato. Continue this process until all your skewers are assembled. Finish by drizzling skewers with the balsamic mixture and garnishing with lemon juice, salt and pepper. Serve and enjoy!








 



XOXO
