Caprese Skewers with Balsamic and Olive Oil

Caprese Skewers with Balsamic and Olive Oil recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

Tomatoes bursting with flavor alongside mozzarella and fresh basil, then drizzled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar and sprinkled with kosher salt and freshly cracked pepper. This was an incredibly simple and delicious summer side dish to accompany a grilled dinner. I was able to prepare these in less time than it took for the steaks to rest after grilling.

Caprese Skewers with Balsamic and Olive Oil

20 Campari or Cherry tomatoes
20 small slices of mozarella cheese
10 basil leaves, torn in half
Extra virgin olive oil
Balsamic vinegar
Kosher salt
Freshly cracked pepper

Slide the tomatoes, mozzarella and basil leaves onto skewers and place them on a serving dish. Drizzle them with extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Sprinkle with kosher salt and freshly cracked pepper. Enjoy!

  1. What a terrific idea. I also like to serve fresh fruit on skewers for an easy pick up and eat side dish. I have tomatoes and may have to make these this weekend. Thanks again for another great idea.

  5. These little skewers couldn't look more perfect! I adore caprese salad, but I might get my boys to eat it if I put it on a stick. :)
