Ok – This is our favorite appetizer and I had to re-post this one again. My sister Liz knows how to make appetizers look completely effortless and so tasty! Every time we put these down on the table, they are the first appetizers that disappear.
If you are entertaining this weekend and you need a quick and easy appetizer? This is it! All you need to do is buy premarinated mozzarella balls, and a basket of the cherry tomatoes and you’ll have these delicious and flavorful kabobs done in less than 10 minutes!
What if you can’t find mozzarella balls already marinated? Easy!
They normally come in a container filled with water. Drain the liquid and place mozzarella balls into a small salad bowl. Drizzle over them with extra virgin olive oil, and season with salt, black pepper and chopped basil or parsley. Then gently toss them until well combined. Cover and chill for about an hour before skewing them onto the sticks.
Liz purchased FORMAGGIO – All natural Fresh Mozzarella in our Marinade, from Costco. Then she also purchased a container of cherry tomatoes which are the bite size tomatoes. With 6-inch skewers, she created these kabobs that were so refreshing and delicious, your guests will love!
