Caprese salad skewers.

Caprese salad is a simple Italian salad made of sliced fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and sweet basil, seasoned with salt and olive oil. In Italy, it is usually served as a starter, not a side dish. Variations of Caprese salad can include Italian dressing or pesto in place of olive oil, or balsamic vinegar in addition to it. Olives may appear, along with rucola or romaine lettuce to augment the basil. Oregano or black pepper is sometimes added. Here we will make a change to this simple dish, in place of arranging it on a plate like we do in Italy, we will put the whole salad onto skewers, and it will be interesting, more beautifully presented and great for a barbecue or party where people are standing rather than sitting because we can eat our salad off the stick.

  1. Roll the mozzarella cheese into balls so the cheese balls are equal to the size of the cherry tomatoes. And separate the sweet basil into single leaves.
  2. Begin to skewer the tomatoes, mozzarella cheese and sweet basil leaves in alternating sequence onto long skewers or toothpicks.
  3. Dress your salad with olive oil and salt, you may choose one or more additional dressings and serve.
