DENVER FOOD AND WINE RECIPE

SALADE CAPRESÉ SKEWERS

Ingredients

12 grape tomatoes (Cherry tomato or similar may be substituted)

12 pre-formed balls of mozzarella cheese (Ciligene)

12 leaves of fresh basil

12 ornamental skewers, 4 inches long

1 ounce balsamic vinegar syrup

Procedure

Begin assembly of the skewers by sliding a grape tomato onto your skewer approximately 1/3 down.

Follow with a basil leaf folded in half.

Follow with a Ciligene mozzarella ball.

Reposition these items so they are at the far end of the skewer away from the handle, enabling the guest to have a quick bite without having too much skewer.

Assemble the skewers on a white round or rectangular plate.

Drizzle with Balsamic vinegar syrup and enjoy!

This item pairs very well with Barone Fini Pinot Grigio
