Caprese skewers

Insalata Caprese is a simply prepared Italian salad made from vine-ripened tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, fresh basil, and olive oil. I took it on the next level...
30 grape or cherry tomatoes
30 fresh basil leaves
4 ounces part-skim mozzarella cheese, cut into 30 (1/2-inch) cubes
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Thread tomatoes, basil leaves, and mozzarella cheese cubes alternately onto 10 (6-inch) wooden skewers. Place skewers on a serving platter.Combine vinegar and oil in a small bowl; stir well with a whisk. Drizzle vinegar mixture evenly over skewers, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Serve immediately, or cover and chill until ready to serve.
