Grilled Pineapple Caprese Skewers


Description

Grilled Pineapple Caprese Skewers with Coconut Macadamia Balsamic Dipping Sauce --- the perfect summer party appetizer!

Ingredients

16  
golden snacking tomatoes (I used the NatureSweet brand, called Sunbursts)
16  
Fresh Basil Leaves
8 ounces
fresh mozzarella balls
1⁄2  
a large pineapple (cut into thick rings)
1⁄4 cup
Ellyndale's Macadamia Nut Oil (for the sauce)
2 tablespoons
coconut milk (for the sauce)
1 tablespoon
aged balsamic vinegar (for the sauce)
1⁄2 tablespoon
Dark Amber Maple Syrup (for the sauce)
1 pinch
of sea salt (for the sauce)

Instructions

  1. Cut a fresh pineapple into thick 1 inch slices. Cut off the peel and core. 
  2. Grill on high for approximately 4 minutes per side. Then, remove from grill and cut into 1 inch pieces.
  3. Assemble your skewers: 1 golden tomato, 1 large fresh basil leaf, 1 small ball of fresh mozzarella. If using long skewers, repeat one more time so that there's two of everything on the skewer. Or if you're using shorter party toothpicks, you can just use one of everything. Totally up to you!
  4. Combine the sauce ingredients in a small bowl and whisk together until combined. 
  5. Serve and enjoy!
