Caprese Kebabs

For the past few weeks I have been looking for no-cook delicious appetizers for a low fuss girls’ only cocktail party.  Luckily, I had the opportunity to brainstorm recipes and ideas with MyRecipes.com editor Ashley Johnson.  Ashley had so many wonderful suggestions and fun ideas that it was impossible to incorporate all of them!  (Check out some of her girls’ night recipe ideas here:  Girls Night In– Party at the Grill )

First on my menu: caprese kebabs.  Nothing says summer like this classic flavor combination! I especially like these kebabs because they add some sass to your spread.  They aren’t your typical “chip and dip” that guests have come to expect. They are fresh, delicious and ridiculously easy to make!    

Caprese Kebabs:

  • 1  pint grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 10  to 14 fresh small mozzarella cheese balls, cut into thirds
  • wooden skewers
  • 1/4  cup  extra virgin olive oil
  • 2  tablespoons  balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4  teaspoon  kosher salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon  pepper
  • 6  fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced 
  • Kosher salt and pepper to taste

Thread 1 tomato half, 1 piece of cheese, and another tomato half onto each skewer. Place skewers in serving dish/bowl.

Whisk together oil and next 3 ingredients. Drizzle oil mixture over skewers; sprinkle with basil and salt and pepper to taste.
