A twist on the classic salad, these Caprese skewers are every bit as fresh and delicious. They are super cute and bite-sized, making them a perfect canape option. 

The default recipe makes 4 skewers


  • 4 cherry tomatoes
  • 4 basil leaves
  • 4 mini mozzarella balls (ideally ciliegine size or bocconcini)


  • Small wooden skewers

Optional (for drizzling)


  • Wash the tomatoes and basil leaves.
  • Thread a piece of mozzarella followed by a basil leaf, followed by the cherry tomato on each skewer. Mill some freshly ground black pepper over them.
  • Serve the skewers with a drizzle of oil, glaze or balsamic based on your preferences. 


  1. Use the freshest ingredients you can and avoid any pieces with imperfections
  2. If you can buy vine-ripened tomatoes then you will find them more vibrant and also flavoursome
  3. Calorie count does not include any drizzles/toppings
