Using 8 mini wooden skewers, pierce one end of each of the basil leaves and push back, allowing room to fit a tomato, followed by a mozzarella ball, and another tomato to create your boat.
Then pierce the other end of the basil leaf through the skewer so that the tomatoes and mozzarella are being cradled by the leaf.
Drizzle evenly with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and season with sea salt and black pepper to taste.
