For my sister-in-law’s bridal shower, I wanted to make cute appetizers that were not a lot of work since we had so many things on the menu. I know how much she loves tomato mozzarella basil salad and I wanted to come up this something that could be easily passed around the room that she would enjoy. These Easy Caprese Salad Skewers are perfect!
Easy Caprese Salad Skewers
When you shopping for the mozzarella balls, try to find the ones that are not tightly vacuum sealed. As you can see in my picture they were smashed looking balls and the Tomato Basil Mozzarella Skewers would look a lot better if the mozzarella was not smushed. You can also add a side of Balsamic Vinegar for dipping as well to add even more flavor.
Caprese Salad Skewers Ingredients:
24 grape or cherry tomatoes
24 small balls fresh mozzarella cheese
One bunch fresh basil leaves
Balsamic Vinegar for drizzle or dipping
Caprese Salad Skewers Directions:
Tear 24 bite-size pieces of the basil.
Place the one tomato, one piece of mozzarella and one piece of basil onto a toothpick.
Do the same with the remainder of the ingredients until they are all gone.
Makes 12 servings (2 “skewers” per serving)

As you can see, this is a perfect easy appetizer, snack, or side dish! Using a low-fat part-skim mozzarella can keep the points low while still giving you the flavor you want. We love serving these as appetizers whenever we have an event or party, but they are also excellent alongside a nice grilled chicken breast or even an Italian salmon dish.
