Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Thread a strawberry, basil leaf and piece of cheese onto each of 12 toothpicks. Drizzle with balsamic glaze just before serving.



Make Ahead Tip: Hold (without glaze) at room temperature for up to 1 hour or refrigerate for up to 2 hours.

Equipment: 12 appetizer-size skewers or toothpicks

Balsamic glaze is balsamic vinegar that's cooked until it's very thick. Look for it with other vinegars in well-stocked supermarkets. Or make it yourself by boiling 1 cup balsamic vinegar in a small saucepan over medium-high heat until syrupy and reduced to about 1/4 cup, 10 to 14 minutes.
