Caprese On A Stick

Here’s a last minute appetizer that’s perfect for your Labor Day barbeque or football tailgate party. I love Caprese Salad so these little bites are a perfect snack. These are fresh, light, easy, healthy and delicious. Not to mention that the flavors compliment each other perfectly.  You can add variations to this recipe based on your favorite Caprese salad ingredients. I included Kalamata olives on some of my skewers for an extra twist! So until next year, Goodbye summer!

Ingredients

  • 2 boxes cherry tomatoes (red or yellow)
  • 12 bocconcini (small mozzarella balls), about 8 ounces
  • 1 bunch basil
  • salt (coarse ground or Kosher)
  • black pepper
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • balsamic vinegar
  • oregano (use fresh if you have it, if not dry works well)
  • Kalamata olives, pitted (optional)
  • long pointed wooden skewers

Instructions

1. Prepare ingredients. Cut cherry tomatoes in half and cut mozzarella balls in half.

2. Skewer alternating tomato halves, mozzarella, basil leaves and kalamata olives (if using). Repeat with the remaining cheese and tomatoes.

3. Arrange on platter and drizzle balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, coarse salt, coarse ground black pepper, and oregano over skewers.

4. Feel free to be creative with the placement and amount of tomatoes or mozzarella based on your preferences.
