Prune, Mozzarella and Basil Skewers

Prep time: 5 minutes

Servings: 5

  • 5 pieces prosciutto, halved lengthwise (optional)
  • 10 California Prunes
  • 10 basil leaves
  • 10 cherry-size mozzarella balls

If using prosciutto, fold each half in half lengthwise so width of prune is wider than width of prosciutto. Starting at one end of prosciutto, wrap one prune; repeat with remaining prosciutto. Set aside.

Wrap one basil leaf around each mozzarella ball then thread onto skewer. Thread one prune or prosciutto-wrapped prune onto each skewer.

When gathering family and friends for a weekend toast or just winding down after work, these California Prune, Mozzarella and Basil Skewers make for a nutritious and delicious addition to the party.
