If you thread this appetizer onto wooden skewers, be sure to soak them in water for 20 to 30 minutes beforehand to ensure they don't burn on the grill.

  • 2 pints cherry tomatoes
  • 1 (12-ounce) container fresh mozzarella, drained and cut into (1-inch) chunks
  • 1/2 loaf ciabatta bread, cut into (1-inch) cubes

Grease grates with oil then preheat grill to medium heat. Meanwhile, alternating ingredients, thread tomatoes, mozzarella and bread onto skewers, brush all over with oil and season with salt and pepper.

Grill skewers, turning once, until cheese is just melted and bread is toasted, 2 to 3 minutes total. Transfer to a platter, drizzle with vinegar, garnish with basil and serve.
