Marinated Mozzarella Caprese Party Skewers

Good Kraft appetizer recipes don't always involve cooking. These skewers are fast to create and easily transported if you need to take your appetizers on the road. They work especially well on a picnic.

The best thing about this is that it's a great (and really fresh-tasting!) make ahead party appetizer recipe, too. Just assemble, refrigerate, and serve when you're ready.

16 ounces Polly-O Part Skim Mozzarella Cheese, cut into cubes
1 bunch fresh basil leaves
2 yellow peppers
1 package cherry tomatoes
1/3 cup Kraft Classic Italian Vinaigrette dressing
Skewers or toothpicks

Directions: 1. Remove stem and seeds from peppers and drizzle lightly with dressing. Place peppers in a pan and roast at 350°F for 10 minutes. Set aside to cool.

2. Thread ingredients onto skewers or toothpicks alternating with cheese, basil, peppers and tomatoes.

3. Place these in a shallow dish and coat ingredients with vinaigrette. Let stand 20 minutes and turn occasionally. Serve as they are as an informal appetizer or without the skewers for a cleaner presentation.
