"So refreshing. So good. . I found that halfing the cherry tomatoes and using mozerella pearls (Walmart) made it easier and doubles the recipe."

"These are excellent! I always get compliments when I take them to get togethers with friends. I would suggest using white balsamic vinegar -- it doesn't discolor the cheese."

"My guests just raved about these. I sprinkled some salt and cracked pepper on them just before serving. These were so easy to make and such a big hit. Was a perfect appitzer for my guests that followed a glueten free diet. Be sure to use a good quality Balsamic vinegar and olive oil since this has so few ingredients, you want the quality to stand out."

"I made this for a wedding I catered and everyone loved it. I couldnt find fresh basil leaves in the quantity I needed at a price the bride could afford so I used chopped fresh basil mixed it with the oil & vinegar and marinated the cheese and then brushed it over the kabobs before serving."

"Very good but i skewer mine on fresh rosemary stalks. Just cut the size you need and strip off the rosemary leaves but leave a couple of inches of them on the end. Makes them look real fancy and since i have fresh rosemary in my garden all summer it's another use for it."
