Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the mozzarella into bite sized pieces. If you are lucky enough to find the small balls, keep them whole. Place in a medium bowl and stir in the tomatoes, olives, oil, garlic, thyme, salt, pepper and red pepper. Cover and refrigerate 1-3 hours.
  2. If basil leaves are large, cut into smaller pieces.
  3. Thread the marinated cheese, tomatoes and olives onto skewers, placing the basil leaves inbetween. Place skewers on a platter; garnish with additional fresh basil. Enjoy!

I served these with some bread and olive oil for our Easter dinner and they went over very well. The marinade was the perfect touch for the normally mild taste of the bocconccini. This is definitely something I will be making again.

This is a wonderful hors d'ouevre!! Made a great snack for the DBF and me. Very pretty and packs quite the tasty punch in the mouth. Thanks!! I want more!

We enjoyed this snack. I only had regular black olives on hand and used toothpicks for the skeweres. Will make again for sure!
