Grilled Caprese Skewers

Author Notes: Amazing grilled recipe. I think heirloom tomatoes are the best food on earth!josie1234

Makes: 6 skewers

  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 12 fresh Mozzarella balls (about 1/3 ounce each)
  • 3 medium assorted heirloom tomatoes, quartered
  • 12 assorted heirloom cherry tomatoes
  • 12 fresh basil leaves
  • 12 1 1/2-inch cubes ciabatta bread
  • 6 (8-inch) skewers
  1. In a small bowl, whisk the oil, vinegar, lemon juice, mustard and garlic until combined; season with salt and pepper.
  2. In a shallow dish or large bowl, combine the mozzarella, tomato, and basil. Pour marinade over and toss well to coat; refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to 2 hours. Add bread cubes and let stand 5 minutes.
  3. Grease grill grates and heat to medium. Thread skewers alternating between mozzarella, tomato wedges, cherry tomatoes, basil leaves, and bread cubes; reserve marinade. Grill the skewers 7-10 minutes, turning a few times, until the cheese is soft and everything is heated through. Serve alone or over a bed of lettuce with reserved marinade on the side
