Caprese Skewers

I think you’re going to love these caprese skewers. I make them ahead of time for camping and days when we’re out on my parents’ boat. They’re so easy to make, and healthy too.

All you need are cherry tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil and toothpicks. If you’ve ever had a caprese salad, you know how well these flavors work together, especially when tomatoes are in season. I just can’t wait for the tomatoes in our garden to ripen so I can make these.
