User rating:

Ingredients

  • 2 - 8 oz. balls Galbani® fresh mozzarella, cut into 1
  • 2 small zucchini, ends removed, cut in half lengthwise
  • 2 small eggplants, peeled, cut in half lengthwise
  • 2 medium bell peppers (red and yellow) cut in half with seeds removed
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 10-12 bamboo skewers
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • ½ cup fresh basil leaves, torn
  • Salt and Pepper

Directions

Heat grill to 450º F.

· In a large bowl, toss zucchini, eggplant, and peppers in half of the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.

· Grill the vegetables over medium heat until tender. Set aside on a sheet tray to cool.

· Once cool enough to handle, cut vegetables into 1" pieces.

· Assemble skewers by arranging one piece of mozzarella, one cherry tomato, and one piece of each of the grilled vegetables. Repeat until skewer is full.

· To serve, place skewers on a large serving platter and drizzle with remaining olive oil. Salt and pepper to taste, and garnish with fresh basil.

Chef’s Note: These skewers are not only a great family appetizer, they’re also perfect for cookouts or holiday parties. Feel free to substitute any seasonal vegetables you have on hand.
