Caprese is one of my favorite salads so we made these Caprese Skewers! This bright and flavorful combo of tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and basil is dressed with a simple olive oil and balsamic glaze.
Prepare your bamboo skewers. It's best to use 6 inch, thick bamboo skewers. Avid using the thin ones, or skewers that are too long since the salad will not hold on well.
Start by skewering the one tomato followed by a basil leaf folded in half.
Add a piece of bocconcini cheese also followed by a basil leaf.
Continue with another piece of tomato, a basil leaf, another piece of bocconcini cheese to finish off the skewer.
Repeat with the bamboo sticks and arrange the Caprese skewers on a platter.
Season lightly with salt and then a good olive oil drizzle.
You can finish off with some chilli flakes if you like or skip the spice.
Have a bowl of balsamic vinegar on the side for dipping the skewers to your taste.
Or up your game by drizzling the balsamic glaze over the skewers and crumbling the croutons over the skewers.
Serve right away and enjoy!
