Prune, Mozzarella, and Basil Skewers

Prep time: 5 minutes
Servings: 5

5 pieces prosciutto, halved lengthwise (optional)
10 California Prunes
10 basil leaves
10 cherry-sized mozzarella balls

If using prosciutto, fold each half in half lengthwise so the width of the prune is wider than the width of the prosciutto. Starting at one end of the prosciutto, wrap one prune; repeat with the remaining prosciutto. Set aside.

Wrap one basil leaf around each mozzarella ball then thread onto a skewer. Thread one prune or prosciutto-wrapped prune onto each skewer.
