Here's an easy appetizer we learned about from Arlene at Otter Lake!
If you're trying to come up with an attractive yet healthy appetizer for your next party or family gathering - here's a great suggestion. And it's quick and easy to make too!
Bocconcini cheese is a small, semi-soft, white, rindless unripened mild cheese which originated in Naples and was once made only from the milk of water buffaloes. Today it's usually made from a combination of water buffalo and cow's milk or in some cases just from cow's milk. Bocconcini is packaged in whey or water and can be bought at most Italian supermarkets.
You'll want to make enough of them to create the appearance of a bouquet - in this photograph there were about 20, but we'd already eaten some!
Place one cherry tomato, two basil leaves, and one ball of bocconcini on the end of the skewer. Arrange the skewers in a vase like a bouquet of flowers. Not only does this taste great but it will dress up your table too!
Eat as is or serve with some olive oil and balsamic vinegar for dipping. Enjoy!
