Caprese Skewers

I love this simple appetizer for so many reasons.  First, it’s only 6 ingredients. Second, two of the 3 main things you need are grown in my parent’s yard.  Lastly, you can make a large batch for a family, or a few small bites.  


Cherry tomatoes, red or yellow
Basil Leaves, torn if large
Fresh mozzarella, cubed, or use the balls
Balsamic Vinegar
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper (optional)

(note: Our homegrown tomatoes were smaller, but if you want them to stand up, slice the tomatoes in half and stand them up as the base.) 

Prepare your ingredients by tearing your basil and cutting your mozzarella.

On a toothpick, add mozzarella, basil (folded), and tomatoes. Feel free to do whichever order you prefer. 

Place finished skewers on a serving platter.  
Drizzle balsamic vinegar and olive oil lightly over skewers.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper (optional.) 


Serve room temperature.
