July 11, 2023

Caprese Skewer Bites! This is absolutely my most favorite summer appetizer! Tomatoes are at their best right now and their sweet flavor shines through in this easy appetizer. These are always the hit of the party! The tomatoes, mozzarella, balsamic glaze and basil are fresh tastes that everyone always loves! And I love how easy they are to make!

Caprese Skewer Bites


1 pint of Cherry Tomatoes, washed and dried

8 oz. Perline Fresh Mozzarella (pearl size)

1/4 cup of Olive Oil

Garlic Powder, to taste

Fresh Basil, chopped

Balsamic Glaze

Appetizer Toothpicks

  1. Drain the water from your fresh mozzarella and place them into a bowl.

  2. Pour the olive oil over the mozzarella and season with garlic powder and fresh basil.

  3. Toss the mozzarella in the oil mixture and left it marinate for at least 15 minutes.

  4. Now it is time to prepare the skewers. Place one piece of mozzarella onto the skewer. And then add a cherry tomato and a second piece of mozzarella on the bottom.

  5. Continue making all of the skewers until all of the ingredients are on skewers.

  6. Arrange the skewers on a serving platter.

  7. Drizzle some balsamic glaze over the skewers.

  8. Top with some fresh basil and serve chilled.

Wasn’t that the easiest appetizer to prepare ever?! My favorite!

Trust me! These are always the hit of the party! All of the fresh tastes of summer and a flavor combination that can’t be beat! Simply the best!
