Mini Caprese Salad Kabobs

A delightful and easy-to-make appetizer that captures the essence of a classic Caprese salad in a fun and portable form.

  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: Varies


Units Scale

1 pint grape tomatoes, washed
1 bunch fresh basil leaves
1/2 lb fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into cubes
Balsamic vinaigrette for dipping
Cocktail picks


Gather all your ingredients, including the washed grape tomatoes, fresh basil leaves, cubed mozzarella cheese, balsamic vinaigrette, and cocktail picks.
Begin assembling the kabobs by taking a cocktail pick and sliding a grape tomato onto it.
Next, take a fresh basil leaf and fold it gently, if necessary, to fit the size of the kabob. Slide it onto the cocktail pick on top of the tomato.
Follow the basil leaf with a cube of fresh mozzarella cheese, pushing it onto the pick.
Make sure each element is well secured on the pick, with the cheese being the last item, to prevent ingredients from sliding off.
Repeat the assembly process with the remaining ingredients until all cocktail picks are used.
Arrange the mini Caprese salad kabobs neatly on a serving platter.
Pour balsamic vinaigrette into a small dipping bowl and place it alongside the kabobs on the serving platter.
Encourage guests to dip their individual kabob into the balsamic vinaigrette to enhance the flavors.
Serve immediately, or cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate the platter until ready to serve.


For an attractive presentation, alternate the direction of the tomatoes and cheese with each kabob.
If desired, drizzle the kabobs with a bit of olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper before serving.
