Caprese Salad Skewers Appetizer

Serves 16-18     adjust servings

These Caprese Salad Skewers are going to be your new favorite appetizer to bring to every party! Cherry tomatoes are paired with marinated mozzarella and fresh basil. Drizzle with Balsamic Reduction! Everyone loves these, and they are a welcome change from carb-heavy party food. 


  • 16-18 cherry tomatoes
  • 16-18 fresh basil leaves
  • 1 (12 ounce) tub marinated mozzarella balls
  • homemade balsamic vinegar reduction
  • 16-18 toothpicks


  1. Add 1 cherry tomato to a toothpick.
  2. Fold a basil leaf in half or into thirds. Place on the toothpick below the cherry tomato.
  3. Add a mozzarella ball on the end. If you would like to serve the appetizers vertically (so the toothpick is sitting on your platter straight up and down), place the mozzarella ball on the platter and move it around so that it looks like it's in the most stable position and won't roll much. Then pierce the toothpick into the top. 
  4. Just before serving, drizzle with homemade balsamic reduction. Serve with the remaining balsamic reduction on the side for guests to add more if they like. 
  5. Store any leftovers in the fridge!
