From Eating Well Magazine January 2006. These appetizers will go quickly. Greek olives would be delicious added to this, too!

These were a hit at my party AND quick and easy to make. I think I might try using the marinated mozzarella balls next time, forgoing the drizzle of olive oil.


  1. Slice each tomato in half. Thread one half of one tomato onto the skewer, cut side facing up.
  2. Next thread a basil leaf, followed by one mozzarella ball, another basil leaf and a tomato half--cut side facing up.
  3. Repeat process until you have 6 skewers.
  4. Drizzle each skewer with a little olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Arrange on serving platter and serve at room temperature.
