Mediterranean Grilled Mozzarella Skewers
  1 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  2 tablespoons Spanish sherry vinegar
  1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano 
  1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  2 teaspoons minced garlic 
  12 fresh mozzarella ciliegine balls (1/3 ounce each)
  12 seedless red grapes
  12 pitted kalamata olives
  12 cherry tomatoes
  12 large caperberries
  6 (8-inch) to 12 (6-inch) skewers 
  1.. In a large bowl, mix the oil, vinegar, lemon juice, oregano, pepper flakes, and garlic. Add the remaining ingredients; toss well to coat. Refrigerate for 2 hours to marinate. 
  2.. Heat a gas or charcoal grill to medium. 
  3.. For 8-inch skewers, thread 1 mozzarella ball, 1 grape, 1 olive, 1 tomato, and 1 caperberry on each skewer; repeat so you have two of each item on each skewer. For 6-inch skewers, thread 1 of each item, in the same order. 
  4.. Grill the skewers on all sides for 5 to 7 minutes or until the cheese is soft and the skewers are thoroughly heated. Serve the skewers as a tapa or side to grilled meat. 
Makes 6 servings.
