I had some of my family over the other day and I wanted to come up with a new twist on caprese on a stick and this is what I came up with. I added some grilled eggplant to the mix and decided to use super long skewers to make them a little more fun! They turned out delicious and were a big hit with my family. I hope you enjoy as well!
Makes 22 skewers
What you'll need:
1 large eggplant, sliced thinly lengthwise and then cut in half, grilled and cooled
11 grape tomatoes, sliced in half
11 mini mozzarella balls, sliced in half
22 basil leaves
1/3 balsamic vinegar
3/4 olive oil
a pinch of sugar or agave nectar
a pinch of salt
What you'll do:
To assemble pierce the tip of the end of an eggplant strip with a long skewer, then string on a tomato half, weave the eggplant back over and add a mozzarella piece. Repeat, but this time weave a basil leaf in there too. Make the dressing by whisking all the ingredients together. You can either drizzle some over the skewers or leave it in a little bowl next to it for people to dip their skewers in.
