    Simple and perfect! They would be nice with some thinly sliced chicken for a light lunch. Some mixed greens on the side with a light dressing maybe.

    Oh for goodness sake. Put whatever in the world you want on these. Serve them with drinks and have these dripping with all sorts of acidic stuff. I gave you the bones of an idea. Run with it and make it your own. Does this make you all happy to get permission???? Just enjoy these cute little skewers and have fun.

    but maybe just a drizle of olive oil mixed with a little lemon juice, a touch of balsamic vinegar..with a hint of sugar...it is awesome!

    For all of you who suggest drizzling them with dressing of one sort, and most suggest oil and vinegar -- I generally serve these with wine and drinks. I truly would not like the vinegar with wine, it would not compliment it on your palate. Water, soda, SURE; wine - please don't ruin it!!!

    These would be a fun thing to serve at a casual gathering. You could drizzle them with red wine vinegar or flavored vinegar and some extra virgin olive oil.

    A friend asked me to point out that if you're going to serve these with drinks to skip the dipping sauces. Odds are they'd be acidic to balance the sweetness of the cheese and basil and would be unpleasant with wine. I'm taking them to a fourth of July party.
    Happy 4th to all.

    I made these and they were really good. I did use some italian-type dressing and drizzled it over them before serving. My husband commented how you could distinguish the taste of each individual ingredient while chewing!

    These sound cute. I could see myself taking them to lunch with some dressing as dipping sauce.
