With warm weather and the peak of the tomato season coming, I wanted to share one of my favorite appetizers and an afternoon snack, Mini Caprese Salad Skewers. 

The best part about this recipe is it only calls for four ingredients, fresh, light, and delightful.

Fresh grape tomatoes, mini mozzarella balls, fresh basil, stacked on mini skewers, and a drizzle of balsamic glaze makes for the perfect bite, heaven on a stick.

WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE CAPRESE SALAD SKEWERS


  • Mini bamboo skewers

  • Mini Mazzarella balls

  • Grape or cherry tomatoes

  • Fresh basil leaves

  • Balsamic glaze

  • Salt and Pepper

  • Blueberries (optional)


HOW TO MAKE CAPRESE SALAD SKEWERS


  • For the balsamic glaze, add balsamic vinegar and sweetener of your choice to a small saucepan.  Set pan over medium heat and simmer until it begins to bubble.  Reduce the heat to low heat and simmer until the mixture reduces to half, approximately 10 minutes.  Cool to room temperature.

  • Pour in a serving bowl or a bottle to use to drizzle with.  Refrigerate before serving.

  • Assemble the skewers.  Place a mozzarella ball through a mini bamboo skewer to an inch from the end.  Next, place a folded piece of fresh basil and push through all the way next to the mozzarella ball.  Next, push a cherry tomato all the way through next to the basil.  Next, push another mozzarella ball all the way next to the cherry tomato.

  • Place Caprese Salad Skewer on a serving platter and repeat with the remaining ingredients.

  • The Caprese Salad Skewers may be refrigerated up until serving.  Before serving, drizzle with balsamic glaze and sprinkle with coarse salt and coarse black pepper.

  • For a Patriotic flair, adding a blueberry next to the cheese would be fabulously delicious.
