Total time
This quick and easy appetizer is sure to be a hit at your next party. Traditional elements of a Caprese salad, tomato, basil and mozzarella are arranged on a short skewer for an instant and savory appetizer.
Serves: 4
  • 8 red grape tomatoes
  • 8 yellow/orange grape tomatoes
  • 32 medium fresh basil leaves, washed and patted dry
  • 16 mini-Mozzarella balls
1 c. balsamic vinegar
  • Optional:

2 T. high-quality extra-virgin olive oil to drizzle
  1. Thread one tomato onto a wooden skewer. Next, fold one basil leaf in half, dark side facing out, and add it to the skewer. Add one mini-Mozzarella ball, followed by another folded basil leaf, and end with another tomato in an alternate color.
  2. Repeat Step #1 with the remaining tomatoes, basil, and Mozzarella until you have 16 completed skewers. Arrange on a serving platter and set aside.
  3. To prepare the glaze, add balsamic vinegar to a small sauté pan over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring frequently, until the vinegar is reduced to about ⅓ of its original volume.
  4. Remove glaze from heat and let cool slightly. Drizzle over the skewers, along with some extra virgin olive oil, if desired. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
