Caprese Skewers: Salad on a Stick

By Hairee Lee

The good old tomato, mozzarella, and basil salad. Always delicious, but kinda boring. So put it on a stick! Sometimes it's just a matter of putting your food on a stick. It's why I love kebabs, lollipops, marshmallows.

Caprese Skewers Serves 6


  • Cherry Tomato
  • Fresh Mozzarella balls (roughly the same size as the Cherry Tomatoes)
  • Olive oil
  • Fresh basil
  • Balsamic vinegar (optional)
  • salt and pepper
  • Skewers


  1. Soak the skewers in water for an hour.
  2. Chop up the basil.
  3. Skewer tomato, mozzarella and piece of basil. Repeat.
  4. Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper.
