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.
