Stick Around

There are tons of different types of food available on a stick. Ice cream, corn dogs, sausage, alligator (if you are from New Orleans this won't seem so odd) and cookies to name a few. I don't know if food is more fun to eat on a stick or if it is just easier. Here is a version of my favorite type of salad on a stick - Caprese Salad Skewers. Fun to make, fun to eat and even more fun to serve!

Caprese Salad Skewers


Ciliegine (little cherry size fresh mozzarella)
20 Basil Leaves
1 Pint of Grape Tomatoes
6-8" skewers
Sea Salt
Cracked Black Pepper
Olive Oil
Balsamic Vinegar


Skewer 1 Cherry Tomato onto a Skewer.

Roll 1/2 of a Basil leaf

and Skewer on top of the tomato.

Skewer 1 Ciliegine on top of the basil.

Arrange Caprese sticks on a platter and sprinkle with sea salt and pepper. Mix 1/4 cup of olive oil and 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar and pour on top of the Caprese Sticks and serve.

hi, this looks delicious, but there is a slight typo, you are supposed to mix 1/4 cup of olive oil and 2 tablespoons of olive oil?? :D
I'm going to see if they have ciliegine on the supermarket here.
