Caprese Skewers

Not only are these SO cute-- but they are super yummy too! I brought them to a bbq potluck and they were all gobbled up.  It is painfully obvious that I have the lamest camera out of all my sisters and mom on here because my pictures of these darling yummy bites suck.  Sorry.  Use your imagination because they really are darling, and oh-so-good! :)
(Recipe from Mel's Kitchen Cafe- of course!) :)

Caprese Skewers

Cherry tomatoes, red or yellow
Basil leaves (about 18-30 leaves, the big ones can be cut in half)
Fresh mozzarella cheese
Balsamic vinegar, for drizzling
Slice the cherry tomatoes in half so you end up with two half-basketball pieces. Slice the mozzarella into bite-sized chunks. Slide a piece of mozzarella onto the toothpick. Place a piece basil leaf and nestle it up next to the mozzarella (large leaves can be cut into thirds or more). Slide a tomato onto the bottom of the skewer, cut side down. Move the mozzarella and basil down to meet the tomato if needed. You want the flat side of the tomato to be right at the end of the toothpick so it stands up straight. Place all the finished skewers on a plate or tray. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar and serve!
