How easy is it to add honey to your recipes?
At The Honey Cottage we really try to find ways for people to use honey in their daily life. I really love this recipe because it is super easy and quick to make and can be pre-made to make lunch easier to pack. I have noticed that everyone has a moment where they want things that are easy or light to eat. I really love being able to make these and having them ready for whenever. These skewers can be used as an appetizer, as a snack, or even put with a salad and made into a meal. The other benefit of this recipe is that the honey is used in raw form. This recipe is great with tofu, chicken, or steak too! I hope you enjoy this as much as I do!
4 Tbsp-Balsamic vinegar
4 Tbsp- Raw Honey
1 cup- ½ inch thick ham cubes
5- Red grape tomatoes
5- Orange cherry tomatoes
5-10- Basil leaves
5-Pitted green olives (optional)
5- Small skewers
Mix the balsamic vinegar and the honey in a bowl or container. Cut the ham into 1-inch cubes and place into the balsamic vinegar honey sauce, mix the pieces around to get a nice coat of sauce on each piece, and place into the fridge overnight.
When you are ready to put together;
Wash the tomatoes and basil and place on a plate. Cut up the mozzarella into 1-inch cubes and place next to the tomatoes. Pull the marinated ham out of the fridge.
Take a skewer and push the end through a red tomato, then fold the basil leaf in half and push the skewer through the center of the basil leaf, push the end through a piece of ham, fold another piece of basil and push the skewer through the center of the basil leaf, then place an orange tomato next to the basil, and lastly add a piece of mozzarella to the end.
Continue this pattern with the next four skewers.
Add a green olive to either end of the skewer to add more color and flavor. Serve and ENJOY!
-Add sliced up pieces of green or yellow pepper
-Drizzle the tops of the skewers with extra honey
-Try adding a slice of cucumber (this can be marinated in the balsamic honey sauce over night too!)
