Servings: 5
Prep Time:


  • 10 California prunes
  • 10 mozzarella balls (ciliegine or cherry size)
  • 10 basil leaves
  • 5 pieces of prosciutto, halved lengthwise, optional


If using prosciutto, fold each half of the prosciutto in half lengthwise so that the width of a prune is wider than the width of the strip of prosciutto. Starting at one end of the prosciutto, wrap a prune until there is no more prosciutto. Set aside.

Wrap a basil leaf around a mozzarella ball then thread onto a skewer. Thread a prune or prosciutto-wrapped prune onto the skewer.

Serve these Prune, Mozzarella, and Basil Skewers immediately.
