This is a great easy appetizer that can be served any time of year. If you are pressed for time, you can buy already-made pesto sauce. Makes approximately 40 appetizers.
2 cups gently packed fresh basil leaves
2 large garlic cloves, peeled
1/2 cup grated Parmisan cheese
1/3 cup walnuts
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
2/3 cup good quality extra virgin olive oil
20 cherry tomatoes, rinsed and patted dry, cut in half
20 mini mozzarella balls, cut in half (can buy at Whole Foods)
Italian bread, wide loaf
3-4 tablespoons olive oil for brushing
4 Tablespoons olive oil
1 Tablesppon balsamic vinegar
1/4 teaspoon salt
40 skewers (4 inches)
If you are really pressed for time, you do not necessarily have to toast the bread. Although...toasting the bread gives the appetizer a nice little crunch.
If you have more time, you can make a balsamic reduction instead of a vinaigrette. This way there will be no separation of liquids. A reduction is also packed with flavor. Use sparingly though because the pesto is also flavor-packed.
