Caprese Skewers with Balsamic Drizzle are perfect bites of freshness. Enjoy this healthy appetizer recipe year round!
Mini mozzarella cheese balls skewered with tender basil leaves and juicy tomatoes, drizzled with tangy-sweet balsamic reduction will knock. Your. Socks. Off.
Each layered is loaded with bold-yet-fresh flavors that combine in a bite that is nearly indescribable. It is SO good!
1 cup balsamic vinegar
cherry or grape tomatoes
mini mozzarella cheese balls (could use regular sized ball cut into bite-sized pieces)
fresh basil leaves, cut in half if large
salt & pepper
- Step 1
Bring balsamic vinegar up to a boil in a saucepan, then lower heat to medium and simmer until it’s the consistency of very thin maple syrup, about 10 minutes.
- Step 2
Pour into a bowl and let cool.
- Step 3
Cut tomatoes in half. Thread a mini mozzarella cheese ball, basil leaf (fold in half if large) and a tomato half onto a tooth pick.
- Step 4
Repeat with remaining ingredients. Sprinkle with salt & pepper, then drizzle cooled balsamic reduction on top.
That’d be grape or cherry tomatoes, fresh basil leaves, and fresh mini mozzarella balls. You can find mini mozza balls in most grocery stores these days. If not, just cut a regular-sized ball of fresh mozz into bite-sized pieces.
Assembly is as easy as 1…2…3!
While you’re assembling the skewers, pour 1 cup balsamic vinegar into a saucepan and let it simmer for 10 minutes, or until it’s the consistency of thin maple syrup. When it’s cool and thickened slightly, drizzle and drip the sweet syrup on top. Mercy. Me.
