Repeat the above steps with the remaining tomatoes, basil leaves and cheese.
Arrange on a plate or tray.
Drizzle olive oil and balsamic reduction over the caprese skewers.
Sprinkle salt and pepper powder.
Caprese Skewers are ready to be served.
Add a strawberry, melon, peach piece to the skewer to make it a bit different.
You can add two tomatoes if you want to.
Don't omit the balsamic reduction, as it makes the salad taste so good.
If you don't want to use balsamic reduction then drizzle some pesto over the skewers.
Take 1 cup good quality balsamic vinegar (Modena one is the best) and reduce it by allow it to simmer in a pan for 10-15 minutes. Stir it frequently so it doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan. If you wish you can add ¼ cup or less Sugar, brown sugar or honey when it is simmers to add a bit of flavour and quicken the reduction time. The reduction is ready when it coats the back of a spoon lightly.
For the authentic traditional taste use fresh mozzarella and not the processed one.
