Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 12 bamboo skewers
  • 24 cherry tomatoes
  • 24 basil leaves
  • 12 ounces salami, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 12 ounces smoked mozzarella, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • Olive oil
  • Freshly cracked black pepper
Directions

Soak skewers in water for 30 minutes. Preheat grill or broiler on low heat.

Wrap each tomato with a basil leaf.

On each skewer, thread a cube of salami, a cube of mozzarella and a basil-wrapped cherry tomato. Repeat with additional salami, mozzarella, and tomato.

Place the skewers on a baking sheet. Broil 4 to 5 inches from heat about 1 minute or until just warm. (If grilling, place them on the grill over low heat, or as the coals are burning down, for 1 to 2 minutes, turning once.) Watch skewers carefully so that the cheese softens a little but does not melt.

Arrange skewers on a serving platter. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with cracked pepper. Serve warm.
