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.
- 1 pint cherry tomatoes
- 8 oz container fresh mozzarella
- small bunch basil
- flat toothpicks
- Slice fresh mozzarella balls in half. Rip the larger basil leaves into 1/2″ pieces.
- Push a tomato onto the narrow point of a toothpick, then a basil leaf, then mozzarella, cut side first. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
- Keep cool until ready to serve.
Get creative and make these skewers with berries, mellon, pineapple, kiwi, peaches, mint, cilantro or whatever is in season. You can’t go wrong with fresh ingredients.
