September 14: The Triumph of the Holy Cross Caprese Skewers

One good reason basil works for today’s feast:

1. Did you know that basil is rumored to have grown around the foot of the cross? Saint Helena, founder of the true Cross, said that she found it beneath an overgrowth of basil (from Kendra Tierney).

Up your caprese salad game by putting the simple ingredients you know and love on wooden skewers! It’s oddly fitting for today’s feast, and so, so simple!

Ingredients
fresh basil
cherry tomatoes
small balls mozzarella cheese, or mozzarella broken up into smaller pieces
olive oil and vinegar, to taste
salt and pepper, to taste
wooden skewers

Preparation
1. As if you were making kebabs, layer basil, cheese, and tomatoes onto your skewers.

2. Drizzle with olive oil and vinegar. Sprinkle salt and pepper on top.
