Ingredients

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

Special equipment:
12 bamboo skewers
  1. Soak skewers in water for 30 minutes. Preheat grill or broiler on low heat.
  2. Wrap each tomato with a basil leaf.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Arrange skewers on a serving platter. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with cracked pepper. Serve warm.
