Food on a stick!
Corn dogs, fudgicles, fruit pops, grilled shrimp on the barbie!
Add to the mix my delicious Caprese Kabobs! They are quick, easy and healthy. Like all food on a stick, your family, friends and guests will love them.
The Caprese salad is one of my favorites – juicy, ripe tomatoes, creamy mozzarella and torn basil. Each time I eat this salad I’m reminded of the lovely trip I had with my mom to Rome and Palermo while on my junior year abroad.
I thought this is the perfect recipe to share with you since your gardens will be bursting with fresh tomatoes and basil very soon!
Caprese Salad Kabobs
- wooden skewers
- grape tomatoes (or your favorite variety fresh from the garden)
- mini balls of mozzarella in oil
- olive oil
- lemon (optional)
- black pepper
Wash your tomatoes and basil.
On the skewer, start with a tomato and then alternate basil, mozzarella, and tomato – making a pattern on the stick. Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic or use the oil that the mozaralla was marinated in. You an also add fresh lemon zest and lemon juice to the dressing to enhance the flavors.
Easy, peasy lemon squeezy!
These are great for a barbecue, but you can also serve mini versions for cocktail parties!
