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, chips and dip 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!

Ingredients

  • 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.
