Caprese Salad is the beloved combination of tomatoes, Mozzarella and basil. Usually served by itself or on a pizza, Caprese Salads are a favorite appetizer or side dish that most people love. For a recent get-together, I made a group-friendly version by placing bite-size tomatoes and Mozzarella balls on toothpicks for an easy grab-and-go appetizer. These would be ideal for a football tailgate, a BBQ, a baby/bridal shower or a small gathering.
- 1 container cherry tomatoes
- 1 container bite-size Mozzarella balls, marinated in olive oil and spices*
- Fresh basil, for serving
Drizzle the extra olive oil mixture over top. Place a bunch of fresh basil in the center. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
*Note: If you cannot find marinated Mozzarella balls, marinate the cheese in a combination of olive oil, red pepper flakes and Italian seasoning until ready to assemble the skewers. Or, in its place, simply drizzle the skewers with balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper.
