Caprese Inspired Skewer with Reduced Balsamic

Gluten Free/Grain Free

I seriously love food on a stick, surely I'm not the only one. I mean stick food is cute and portable, what's not to love?

This recipe be made as a side item, a light lunch, a snack or perfect for a picnic. We would have more picnics, but where we currently live in NM it's dusty and windy, so we tend to eat our stick food indoors.

Regardless of eating indoors or out, go make yourself some stick food.

What you need:
12 Skewers
Grape tomatoes, organic
Mozzarella chunks or balls (the kind in the water), rennet free
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar, organic 
2 Tbls extra virgin oil
1 tsp dried basil
Pinch of salt

What you do:
Alternately place tomatoes and mozzarella on skewers, set aside

In a small pot, over medium heat, heat balsamic vinegar for approximately 4 to 5 minutes. Turn on the exhaust fan, the smell is strong! Remove from heat, vinegar should be reduced and thicker. 

Allow to cool.

In a small bowl, mix olive oil, basil and salt.

Drizzle tomato basil skewers with cooled balsamic. Follow by drizzling with olive oil mixture.
