Caprese Skewers comprise cherry tomatoes, mozzarella pearls and basil leaves threaded onto cocktail sticks. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar.



  • 300g (10½ oz) mini mozzarella pearls
  • 30 cherry tomatoes, washed
  • 30 basil leaves, washed
  • balsamic vinegar, for drizzling [optional]


  1. Thread the ingredients on to cocktail sticks, alternating between tomato, basil and mozzarella.
  2. Arrange the skewers onto a serving platter.
  3. Season to taste. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar, if desired, and serve immediately. Enjoy!


  • If you have any salad dressing available, you can lightly sprinkle some over the kebabs. Extra virgin olive oil and red wine vinegar in a ration of 2:1 will also do.
  • If you can’t get hold of mozzarella pearls, you can use feta cheese instead. Cut the cheese into bite-sized cubes first!
  • You can make these skewers a few hours ahead of a party and keep it in the fridge. Leave the drizzling of any type of sauce just before serving though!
