Tomato, Basil and Bocconcini Skewers


10 serves
10 minutes


Our top searched recipe of all time! This fan favourite is a classic, simple, healthy go-to, that you can pull out for any party or occasion.




2 tubs Bambini Bocconcini
2 punnets Cherry Tomatoes
1 bunch Fresh Basil
Sea Salt
Cracked Black Pepper
Good Quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Basil Pesto if desired


1 Slice cherry tomatoes in half and place in a large bowl
2 Drain Bocconcini balls and combine with tomatoes
3 Tear basil leaves and combine with tomato & bocconcini
4 Season with sea salt and cracked black pepper and pour over good quality extra virgin olive oil (For a stronger basil flavour add a small amount of good quality basil pesto or use our Basil Salad Bocconcini). Combine all ingredients well so that bocconcini and tomato are covered in marinade.
5 On a tooth pick, place a basil leaf, bocconcini ball and finally, half a cherry tomato (placing the cherry tomato on the bottom of the tooth pick allows the skewer to stand up on its own).
6 Place the skewers on a platter and serve as a canape.
7 Notes: The key to this dish is always using fresh ingredients (basil, tomato and bocconcini) and the highest quality Olive Oil or Basil Pesto.

As a variation, when serving, drizzle skewers with sticky balsamic glaze (available in supermarkets and gourmet delicatessens)
