Caprese Salad Skewers
I love the flavors in a classic caprese salad. They taste amazing together and are so fresh and delicious. That’s why I love to create different variations with caprese flavors, like these fun skewers, caprese pasta, grilled caprese sandwich and caprese pasta salad.
These delicious caprese kabobs are a great appetizer idea for your next party! While I love the classic party appetizers like cheese balls, veggie cups and a charcuterie board, it’s fun to switch it up every now and then. And these caprese skewers are the perfect way to do that!
The skewers take minutes to put together and look so fancy on a white platter. Your guests will love these bite sized caprese kabobs filled with fresh tomatoes, mozzarella, basil and a balsamic glaze. YUM!
- Cherry tomatoes: I like to use cherry tomatoes because they are more round in size, but you can use grape tomatoes as well.
- Mozzarella balls: I prefer to use mozzarella balls because they are the perfect size! If you can’t find them, you can slice up a big ball of mozzarella instead.
- Fresh basil: I absolutely love the flavor that basil adds. These caprese skewers are the perfect way to use up fresh basil from your garden!
- Balsamic Glaze: I love to make my own balsamic glaze, but you can buy it at the store as well.
- Toothpicks: You can use any type of toothpick or mini skewers to make these caprese kabobs. These knotted cocktail skewers would be a fun addition.

Can these be made 18-24 hours ahead of time?
Yes, they can be made the night before. I would not add the balsamic glaze on top until serving.

Hi Jamielyn! These look great! Could you please tell me what balsamic glaze you use to make yours? I Googled and found several recipes and also bottled versions. They all seem to have a little different ingredients. So, I’d like to know what you recommend. Thanks so much!
Thank You for this recipe. I grew some fresh basil in a pot & this recipe is perfect to try it. I will rate it after I try it. I saw Donna’s post about the glaze. I saw that it was underlined on the recipe , so I just clicked on that & got the recipe for your glaze! You made it so easy for us. Donna, you could also look up the glaze in her recipe index.
Look so delicious! I can’t wait to try it. Thank you very much for sharing.
