Have you tried heirlooms? These beautifully coloured tomatoes lack the genetic mutation that gives tomatoes their red colour. Not only they are far more flavourful and juicy than regular tomatoes, but they're also more nutritious!
It's up to you whether you use the skewers or make a regular Caprese salad using my Homemade Red Pesto.
