Tomato & mozzarella skewers

Tomato and mozarella skewers recipe

Here’s a great appetizer recipe, very easy although it takes a little time  to make ;-) .
It’s very common in France to have friends over for a pre-dinner drink (apéritif). But we also often invite them for what we call “apéritif dinatoire” which means there is no dinner after it, you eat while drinking! In these occasions, I make different finger-food like Spanish tapas. It’s important to vary tastes and types so your guests don’t get bored.  There are tons of delicious recipes I’ll try to share with you in the finger-food pages.

Preparation time: 15 minutes – Marinating time: at least 30 minutes

Ingredients (for 20 skewers)

20 toothpicks

20 tomatoes cherry
20 small mozzarella balls
10 basil leaves (5 if they’re big)
2 tablespoons of parsley
2 tablespoons of small chive
2 tablesoons of olive oil
salt & pepper


1/ Chop parsley and small chive. Pour mozzarella balls in a bowl. Add olive oil, parsley, small chive, salt and pepper. Cover and leave aside for at least 30 mn. (If you can leave it overnight, even better).

2/ Cut tomatoes and basil leaves in half. On a toothpick, line up one half of tomato, a piece of basil leaf, a mozarella ball and finish with the second tomato half.

    So simple yet so yummie :)!! But I prefer Buffalo Mozzarella, because it has more flavour!!

    I can’t disagree with you on that point ;-) I actually used Buffalo Mozzarella for these ones! It just takes one more step: cutting it into dices…
