Caprese Skewers

How cute are these little guys?!  Everyone is well aware these days of what a caprese salad is, but there is just something so good about a tiny version of anything.  Once you get past the “cuteness-factor” these are also a bomb of goodness in your mouth.  Enjoy!

Yield: 50 skewers     Active Time: 20 minutes


  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 25 cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
  • 50 bocconcini
  • 50 fresh basil leaves, cut in half lengthwise if large
  • salt & pepper


  1. Bring balsamic vinegar up to a boil in a saucepan then lower heat to medium and simmer until it’s the consistency of very thin maple syrup, about 10 minutes. Pour into a bowl and let cool.
  2. Cut tomatoes in half. Thread a mini mozzarella cheese ball, basil leaf (fold in half if large) and a tomato half onto a tooth pick. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Sprinkle with salt & pepper, then drizzle cooled balsamic reduction on top.
