Servings: 12 skewers
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 2 min
12 bamboo skewers
24 cherry tomatoes
24 basil leaves
12 ounce salami, cut into 1-inch cubes
12 ounce smoked mozzarella, cut into 1-inch cubes
freshly cracked black pepper
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.
