Ingredients

  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 cups bocconcini cheese I used mini bocconcini
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes
  • 1 bunch basil fresh
  • 1/2 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp pepper or to taste

Instructions

  • In a small skillet add the balsamic vinegar and cook over medium heat until it reduced to less than half and thickened. Make sure you stir occasionally. It should only take about 5 to 10 minutes, depending on the amount you're reducing.
  • Take a toothpick and on it stick a bocconcini, a basil leaf and a cherry tomato. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Using a teaspoon drizzle some of the balsamic reduction onto each appetizer.
