Ingredients

  • grape tomatoes, cut in half
  • small fresh mozzarella balls
  • fresh basil leaves
  • prosciutto sliced, cut in half
  • strawberries, sliced
  • blackberries
  • artichoke hearts, quartered

Balsamic glaze

  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Splenda brown sugar*

Instructions

  1. To make the balsamic glaze, add the vinegar and brown sugar to a sauce pan.  Bring to a simmer and cook down until the volume is reduced to half the original. This may take around 10 minutes.

  2. Set aside and let cool.

  3. Meanwhile take some toothpicks and start making your kebabs. My choices were:

    Fruit kebabs with basil leaves, mozzarella balls and a piece of cucumber.  

    Classic caprese with tomatoes, basil and mozzarella

    Antipasta kebabs with prosciutto, mozzarella, basil, artichoke hearts and tomatoes.

  4. Drizzle the balsamic glaze over the kebabs or serve on the side. 

    NOTE*** I did not add exact amounts because you can make what ever combination you want with whatever ingredients you wish. It's 71 calories for 1 classic caprese kebab without glaze.
