Slice cherry tomatoes in half and place in a large bowl
Drain Bocconcini balls and combine with tomatoes
Tear basil leaves and combine with tomato & bocconcini
Season with sea salt and cracked black pepper and pour over good quality extra virgin olive oil (For a stronger basil flavour add a small amount of good quality basil pesto or use our Basil Salad Bocconcini). Combine all ingredients well so that bocconcini and tomato are covered in marinade.
On a tooth pick, place a basil leaf, bocconcini ball and finally, half a cherry tomato (placing the cherry tomato on the bottom of the tooth pick allows the skewer to stand up on its own).
Place the skewers on a platter and serve as a canape.
Notes: The key to this dish is always using fresh ingredients (basil, tomato and bocconcini) and the highest quality Olive Oil or Basil Pesto.
As a variation, when serving, drizzle skewers with sticky balsamic glaze (available in supermarkets and gourmet delicatessens)
