Here's one of my favorite appetizers! It's a low carb and healthy option. My challenge, finding the right size skewers! I found really long skewers, thought they could be cut in half, but it doesn't skewer through the tomatoes nicely, and breaks the mozzarella cheese balls.Ugh! Note:to self to stock up on skewers. So I decided to leave the length. Instead of serving individually, which I did previously in non stem wine glasses. I needed to serve it buffet style. So, hunting around the house for serving dishes. I ended up serving in 3 glass cylinders and turned out to be a nice presentation. Love it when impromptu creative ideas come to mind! Enjoy! Sharon Grape tomatoes vary in size from week to week at the grocery store; some pints we found had only 24 while others had more than 40. Good news, you should still have enough mozzarella balls because they are generally sold in 8-oz. containers that have more than enough.
