Dietitian's Pick: Tomato, Basil and Bocconcini Wreath
Serves: 14 (3-4 skewers per serve) Time to make: 30 mins
2 x 250g punnets cherry tomatoes
2 bunches basil, leaves picked, plus extra leaves, to garnish
2–3 x 210g tubs cherry bocconcini, well-drained
1/4 cup store-bought gluten-free basil pesto
Thread 1 cherry tomato onto a toothpick. Fold a basil leaf in half and thread onto same toothpick, followed by 1 bocconcini ball. Repeat with remaining cherry tomatoes, basil and bocconcini to make about 50 skewers.
To serve, lay large basil leaves in the shape of a wreath on a large serving platter. Arrange skewers on top of basil leaves and drizzle with the basil pesto. Serve skewers immediately.
If you are pressed for time, make the skewers a day ahead. Store them in the fridge in an airtight container, then drizzle with pesto before serving.
