Easiest Appy Ever: Salad Skewers

I can’t take any credit for this appy, my SIL made it last summer and I’m sure there are a gazillion posts on Pinterest but it was such a fun (and fairly clean) way to eat my favourite ever salad: tomato and bocconcini (mozzarella).

You need 4 ingredients, 5 if you want to be fancy, and it comes together in less than 10 minutes.

Ingredients & supplies:
Equal amounts of:
o   cherry tomatoes
o   mini bocconcini balls
o   basil leaves
-        -  balsamic glaze
-         - skewers

        1.    cut cherry tomatoes in half
        2.   build skewers in this order:
-   half tomato, bocconcini ball, basil leave, other half tomato
-   if you are using the short skinny skewers, do one set per skewer… we could only find the big bamboo skewers so did two sets per skewer
       3.    arrange skewers on a plate and drizzle with balsamic glaze4.  optional: you could also drizzle on a bit of olive oil but we just did the glaze and it was perfect!

These salad skewers were so easy and deliciously refreshing; especially in the heat wave we are enduring right now. If you need to travel with this appy simply put the skewers together at home and store in the fridge until you need to leave. Once you arrive at your destination arrange the skewers on a plate, drizzle on the balsamic, serve and enjoy all the compliments!
