Light, healthy and perfect for summer entertaining, these Caprese Skewers courtesy of Swiss Woods B&B are as simple to make as they are delicious!

Caprese Skewers


4 bamboo skewers, soaked in water
12 good sized grape or cherry tomatoes
12 small mozzarella balls (you can also use the marinated ones)
12 leaves of fresh basil
Olive oil
Balsamic vinegar (optional)


Remove the skewers from the water and thread with a tomato, basil leaf, mozzarella ball, basil leaf, tomato, basil leaf…using 3 tomatoes per skewer and brush with olive oil.

Flash grill these on a hot grill on the side just when you are about ready to serve. They are finished when the tomatoes split but the mozzarella has not melted. Serve immediately. Do not hold these warm on the grill or your mozzarella will melt off the skewer.

Serve drizzled with an aged balsamic vinegar (optional).
