  • 1 pkg fresh mozzarella pearls
  • 1 English cucumber diced
  • 1-2 bunches fresh basil
  • 1 8 oz pkg fresh blackberries
  • 1 8 oz pkg fresh blueberries
  • Balsamic glaze
  • appetizer toothpicks or skewers


  • Open, drain and rinse mozzarella pearls, set aside. I used pearls as I felt the mozzarella balls were slightly too big, but you decide.
  • Rinse blackberries and blueberries. Set aside on papertowel to ry.
  • Cut cucumber into ¾-1" slices and then cut into quarters. Set aside.
  • Rinse basil leaves and pat dry. Depending on the size of the leaves, cut into 1" strips width-wise.
  • Using your toothpicks, place your bites on starting with the mozzarella pearls, then a folded basil lear, followed by a blackberry, a piece of cucumber, another mozzarella pearl and finally a blueberry with the flower end facing out.
  • Place your skewers on your tray as you make them, My tray was long and for ease, I alternated the skewers between one side of the tray and the other, always with the part your guests will be grabbing facing out.
  • Refrigerate or serve right away, drizzling with balsamic glaze before serving or as an option for your guests.


You'll love that you can make these the day before the event!
