Caprese salad on a stick!
Looking for a dish you can put together in a hurry and get on the table during a party? How about one that keeps it light and healthy too? If you love traditional caprese this version of the appetizer may entice you with both color and new taste!
We were grilling out for a party we were hosting and my best friend was helping me throw some appetizers together. She and I decided skewers would be a great idea and thanks to her these were invented. Caprese salad is very popular, and one of my favorites. It happens to be the inspiration behind these!
Chop the zucchini and bell peppers, half the tomatoes and cube the mozzarella. For this recipe I chose both orange and red cherry tomatoes, then a yellow bell pepper. Next mince some basil and garlic, then toss it all with oil and vinegar to marinate. I chose to put mine in the fridge for about half an hour or so but this is strictly optional.
I go through wooden skewers so quickly, definitely should invest in some of these!
Arrange the veggies and cheese on a skewers. I chose to leave some of the basil leaves whole to add in to the skewers. The best part about this appetizer? No cooking needed- just serve!
This no bake appetizer is quick and easy. All you have to do is chop up the veggies, marinate and skewer them and you are all set!
