This year-round favorite is packed with flavor and can be beautifully displayed on a platter! Easy to prepare and assemble.

The amount you will need of each item will depend on how many skewers you want to make. You will want for each skewer: 1 appetizer stick, 2 cherry tomatoes, 2 mozzarella balls, and 2 cucumber rounds

Ingredients:

Directions:

Place your fresh mozzarella balls on a paper towel to let the extra moisture drain off the cheese. Place the balls in a bowl large enough for all the elements on the skewer. 

Wash your cherry tomatoes and lay them on a towel to dry. When dry, place them into the bowl. 

Cut the end tips off the cucumbers. Using a peeler, peel down the length of the cucumbers in sections to give a ribbon look to the outside of the cucumber. Cut the cucumbers into ½” rounds and add them to the bowl.

 (if you can’t find Persian Cucumbers, you can use an English Cucumber. These tend to be larger in diameter, so you may need to cube them or cut them into quarters.) 

Take the basil leaves off the stem and lay them on top of each other. Using a knife, cut down through the leaves, creating slivers. Add these into the bowl as well.  

Gently toss everything in the bowl. Sprinkle the ingredients with a bit of sea salt and freshly ground pepper.

Drizzle More Than Olives Basil Olive Oil and Traditional Aged Balsamic over the mixture. You want to drizzle just enough to coat everything. Give the mixture another gentle toss. 

The mixture can sit for a few hours in the refrigerator before skewering, giving it a gentle toss a few times. It is best if it sits for at least half an hour before skewering and serving.  

Once skewered, place them on your serving platter and drizzle the remaining marinade over the skewers. Serve and enjoy!!

More Than Olives

At More Than Olives we thoughtfully select specialty foods that will enhance your kitchen culinary experiences. We continue to look for new products and we welcome you to visit our Folsom store for tasting experiences.

“This is a great little place. The staff is super friendly and helpful. We were visiting from GA and couldn’t take the large bottles of oil or vinegar back with us on the plane so they helped us pick out our favorites and shipped them to us. It all arrived in perfect condition. Everything is so good but our favorite is the Sex on the Beach balsamic vinegar! If you’re in Folsom you have to go! ❤️”
Jennifer Pearson

“The olive oils and vinegars are so tasty. I love how easy it is to refill the bottles. I am looking forward to salads, marinades and more this summer as fresh fruits and vegetable become available. Love the staff and love the quality of the products.”
