Ingredients

    • 1 cup extra-virgin olive oil
    • 2 tablespoons Spanish sherry vinegar
    • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
    • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
    • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
    • 12 Fresh Mozzarella ciliegine balls (1/3 ounce each)
    • 12 seedless red grapes
    • 12 pitted kalamata olives
    • 12 cherry tomatoes
    • 12 large caperberries
    • 6 (8-inch) to 12 (6-inch) skewers

Instructions

In a large bowl, mix the oil, vinegar, lemon juice, oregano, pepper flakes, and garlic. Add the remaining ingredients; toss well to coat. Refrigerate for 2 hours to marinate.

Heat a gas or charcoal grill to medium.

For 8-inch skewers, thread 1 Mozzarella ball, 1 grape, 1 olive, 1 tomato, and 1 caperberry on each skewer; repeat so you have two of each item on each skewer. For 6-inch skewers, thread 1 of each item, in the same order.

Grill the skewers on all sides for 5 to 7 minutes or until the cheese is soft and the skewers are thoroughly heated. Serve the skewers as a tapa or side to grilled meat.
