February 2018: Heart-Shaped Caprese Skewers

Heart-Shaped Caprese Skewers

If you need a simple recipe to impress someone special on Valentine’s Day then this is the recipe for you!

Only 5 ingredients necessary:

Grape Tomatoes

Mini Mozzarella Balls

Fresh Basil Leaves

Good Quality Balsamic Vinegar

Good Quality Olive Oil

You will also need short skewers, a knife, and a cutting board (that’s it!)


I couldn’t find the smallest size mozzarella balls they make so I sliced mine in half to have a better ratio of cheese to tomato to basil.

  1. Start by slicing the mozzarella balls in half if they are larger.
  2. Slice the grape tomatoes diagonally. Flip one of the halves around to shape a heart.
  3. Skewer the grape tomato heart, one basil leaf, and half of a mozzarella ball.
  4. Repeat in any order you prefer till you have a full plate.
  5. Assemble in a single layer on a plate and drizzle with balsamic vinegar and olive oil.
  6. Serve!
