Caprese skewers made with cherry tomatoes, basil and baby mozzarella balls are the perfect party appetizer. Your guests will love this recipe! Serve with a simple balsamic dipping sauce (recipe below). This recipe yields about 22 little skewers, size as shown here.
1 pint cherry tomatoes (smaller tomatoes are preferable)
1 medium ripe peach (totally optional), pitted and sliced into small, bite-sized pieces no larger than your tomatoes
8 ounces ciliegine (mini mozzarella balls)
1 small bunch of basil (smaller basil leaves are preferable, you’ll need between 22 to 44 leaves total)
Onto each skewer, thread the following in alternating patterns: one cherry tomato, one ciliegine, one to two leaves of basil and a slice of peach or an additional tomato.
To prepare the sauce, simply whisk together all of the ingredients in a small bowl until emulsified. Serve skewers on plates or a platter with sauce nearby.
Recipe inspired by Legends in Norman, OK. Make it tomato free: Skip the cherry tomatoes and use two peaches (total) instead.
