Caprese Salad Skewers with Balsamic Glaze

Caprese Salad Skewers with Balsamic Glaze are a delightful and elegant appetizer that combines the classic flavors of a Caprese salad in a fun and portable form. These skewers are perfect for parties, picnics, or as a light and refreshing snack. The combination of juicy tomatoes, creamy mozzarella, fresh basil, and sweet balsamic glaze is sure to impress your guests. Here’s how to make them:

Ingredients

  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 1 (8-ounce) container mozzarella balls (ciliegine or bocconcini), drained
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
  • Balsamic glaze, for drizzling
  • Wooden skewers or toothpicks

Instructions

1
Assemble the Skewers:
Start by washing the cherry tomatoes and patting them dry. If your basil leaves are large, you might want to tear them into smaller pieces.
Thread a cherry tomato onto a skewer or toothpick, followed by a basil leaf (folded if large), and then a mozzarella ball. Repeat the process until all the ingredients are used. Depending on the size of your skewers or toothpicks, you can adjust the number of tomatoes, basil leaves, and mozzarella balls on each.
2
Season: Once all the skewers are assembled, arrange them on a serving platter. Season lightly with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Drizzle a little extra-virgin olive oil over the skewers.
3
Drizzle with Balsamic Glaze: Just before serving, drizzle the skewers with balsamic glaze. The glaze adds a rich, sweet, and tangy flavor that complements the freshness of the tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella beautifully.
4
Serve: Serve the Caprese Salad Skewers immediately after drizzling with the balsamic glaze. They're best enjoyed fresh but can be refrigerated for a short time before serving if necessary.
