The strawberries pair wonderfully with the rich balsamic glaze and fresh basil. These skewers are the perfect fix when you need something sweet but want to keep it healthy, yet satisfying.

 

Ingredients:

 

16 fresh strawberries
32 fresh basil leaves
16 mini mozzarella balls
1 cup Balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup honey

You will also need:

16 six-inch wooden skewers

 

 

Begin by washing the strawberries and cutting them in half, horizontally leaving the husk intact. Also wash the basil leaves and pat them dry.

Prepare the glaze by adding the Balsamic vinegar and honey to a small saute pan over medium-high heat until it reduces into a syrupy glaze. Set it aside and let it cool to room temperature.

 

Grab your wooden skewers (I highly recommend using a 6 inch bamboo skewer because it is a perfect size ) and thread the top half of one strawberry onto the skewer with the hull side facing up.

 

Next, fold one basil leaf in half, keeping the dark side facing out, and thread it onto the skewer. Now add a Bocconcini mozzarella ball followed by another basil leaf and the bottom of the strawberry.

 

Repeat all the steps again until you have 16 kabobs completed. Drizzle the glaze over the skewers and serve.
