Perfect For Social Gatherings

This appetizer made from fresh mozzarella balls, pineapple, and fig bites is perfect for social gatherings. Everyone that has tried it compliments me on it. I am writing this recipe as we are all asked to stay home because of the COVID-19. Self-isolation is hard and lonely. I miss the social gatherings where I would bring this appetizer to. This world chaos caused by this terrible disease will subdue at some point and people will continue getting together and enjoying food. I hope this appetizer is one of the great dishes that will bring everyone back together again.

Substitutes for Mozzarella, Pineapple Fig Bites

I have made those skewers differently over the years. I like them with fresh pineapple too. Especially if the pineapple is ripe and extra sweet, the juicy sweet taste is super yummy. Some people don’t like figs. If you are one of them, I tried those skewers with dried dates and they are still very delicious and still healthy. I am a fan of the fresh mozzarella balls so I haven’t tried this recipe with other cheeses.

Equipment

There are very few things you need to make this amazing appetizer. Apart from the 3 ingredients you need to make the skewers, you will need toothpick skewers. I bought a box (about count of 100) for one of my kids’ birthday parties and still have some skewers left several years after.

Notes

  • You can experiment with the pineapple chunks. I like to half them, so it is not too much pineapple, but feel free to leave the chunk whole if that is how you like it better. Just make sure you have enough chunks for all the mozzarella halves.
  • Same with the figs. If you like more figs into the bites, cut the figs into bigger pieces or leave them whole
  • Same with the mozzarella fresh balls. You can decide to leave them as a whole
  • If you decide to leave the figs, pineapple and fresh mozzarella balls whole (don’t cut them up), just make sure people can eat the bites. It might become a big bite to chew on
  • We eat with eyes first, so in this appetizer I pierce the figs leaving their inside on top to show the pretty and nutrient texture inside the fig
  • We are extremely excited to announce we are now using the saferecipeguide.org guidelines to make our recipe safe-friendly. We will slowly be incorporating the safe recipe guidelines into our recipe instructions!
