Mozzarella Stick “Caprese” Bites


I love, love caprese salad. It’s extremely easy and quick to put together and always impresses. I took it up a notch here by making them into skewer appetizers. The only time-consuming part is assembling them. Problem solved! I gave them to my ten-year-old daughter to do. She had so much fun putting them together.   Yields approx 20 small skewers


Prepare the Mozzarella Stick "Caprese"

1. Bake the mozzarella sticks according to package directions. Let cool, then cut each mozzarella stick into thirds.
2. Place a tomato half, a piece of mozzarella stick, and then a folded basil leaf on a skewer. Repeat, making sure the tomato is on the bottom as a base.
3. Drizzle with balsamic reduction. Serve at room temperature.


These can be prepared a few hours in advance.
