Mini Caprese Skewers with Balsamic Glaze - Easy Summer Appetizer

Happy Sunday everyone and welcome to my blog.

Summer is all about keeping things easy and light!  These Caprese Skewers with Balsamic Glaze are a quick and healthy appetizer that your guests will love. Easy to assemble, delicious and make a pretty presentation.




Mini square mozzarella cheese pieces are skewered with sweet basil leaves and juicy cherry tomatoes then drizzled with sweet balsamic glaze to create the perfect bite-size appetizer. Trust me when I tell you that these will be gone in  a matter of seconds.




To make these for your next gathering you’ll need grape or cherry tomatoesfresh basil leaves, and fresh mozzarella.  You can get mini cheese balls in most grocery stores these days. If not, just cut regular-sized fresh mozzarella into square bite-sized pieces and place on top of store bought mini square toasts like I did here.















Layer a fresh basil leaf or two on top of a mini toast, add a drizzle of balsamic glaze, fresh mozzarella cheese, drizzle again with balsamic glaze (if you want to), and lastly; add cherry tomato and place a toothpick to hold it all together.
  

Aren't these adorable?  And so pretty to look at!  Make sure to make plenty of these because they won’t last very long.


Happy entertaining,


Janet

  3. What a beautiful presentation!!! All the gorgeous colors translate into gorgeous tastes and textures, I'm sure! It's not that easy (at least not for me!) to find truly sweet cherry tomatoes in the Kansas City area. I've searched high and low. Even places like Sprouts, Trader Joe's and Whole Foods...blah! The tomato has to be perfect for these. the juice just kind of squirts all over everything else, so if it's not up to par...blah! These look so good...I know you enjoyed them!

    1. Hello Alycia,

      I agree.. The cherry tomatoes need to be on point for these but for me, the mozzarella needs to be fresh and the balsamic glaze has be be good quality. But it is the perfect appetizer for summer. Fresh, light and very tasty.

      Have a great week.
