Tomato Mozzarella Skewers

Tomato Mozzarella Skewers

Here's my twist on the classic tomato salad. When you skewer perfect, flavorful cherry tomatoes and bite-sized mozzarella bocconcini (little balls) and serve them with spicy Bloody Mary Vinaigrette, you get a salad takeoff that is simple, dramatic, delicious and nearly instant.

Ingredients

½ Teaspoon Kosher Salt
½ Teaspoon Freshly Ground Black Pepper
2 Celery Hearts (3 tablespoons, finely diced)
32 Fresh Mozzarella Bocconcini
32 Cherry Tomatoes
½ Cup Bloody Mary Mix
2 Tablespoons Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
32 Large Basil Leaves (Washed and dried)
8 Wooden Skewers (10-inch)

Instructions

1. For the Vinaigrette: In a medium bowl, whisk together all the ingredients. Refrigerate until you're ready to serve.

2. For the Skewers: Thread the mozzarella, tomatoes, and basil leaves on the skewers, alternating them and using 4 of each per skewer. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

3. For the Salad: Arrange two skewers on each of four salad plates and drizzle the skewers with the vinaigrette. You can also arrange all the skewers on a big platter and pour the vinaigrette into a small bowl for dipping. If you're serving with the crispy onions, mound them next to the skewers and serve immediately.

4. Cat's Note: Some Bloody Mary mixes are saltier and spicier than others; be sure to taste before adding any more salt or pepper.
