  • Short wood skewers


  • 45 mini mozzarella balls I prefer the mini "pearls"
  • 30 pra grape or cherry tomatoes
  • 15 fresh basil leaves, halved
  • 15 4-inch wooden skewers
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  • Place a mozzarella ball onto a skewer, followed by a tomato, half of a basil leaf, a second mozzarella ball, another tomato, another half of basil leaf and a third mozzarella ball. Repeat until 15 skewers are made.

The skewers make this salad portable and utensil-free, but feel free to skip them and combine this salad into a bowl if you prefer.
