Nothing more satisfying than Caprese Salad with sweet, ripe garden tomatoes in summertime. Except maybe these flavorful Caprese Mini Kabobs!
So quick and easy to make, these kabobs are a great accompaniment to burgers off the grill. Equally at home on a fancy luncheon buffet. Portable and self-contained for picnics, cookouts and barbecues. Perfect side or appetizer.
What is it about “mini” that’s so fun to eat? Love popping these little Angel Sweet tomatoes in my mouth. Tomatoes and marinated hand-tossed fresh mozzarella balls. The just-picked basil layers between, adding sweet and savory, pungent and peppery. The fragrance of the basil is intoxicating. Caprese Mini Kabobs are a real treat, one of the easiest, most colorful appetizers you’ll ever make.
You’ll need just three ingredients: grape or angel sweet tomatoes, marinated fresh mozzarella balls and fresh basil leaves. Also wooden skewers and about ten minutes. (Got ten minutes?)
So how exactly do you eat Caprese Mini Kabobs?
Ha. Clearly I am not the person to ask. After taking pictures of these little beauties I started snacking away writing this post. Twice I’ve stopped to wipe down my screen. Because these ripe little tomatoes are just bursting sweetness and flavor. (Read: juice!) However you eat them, you won’t be disappointed with these yummy little Caprese Mini Kabobs!
Caprese Mini Kabobs
- 12 ounce package marinated fresh mozzarella balls (small)

YAY for an easy little treat ON A STICK. 🙂 Love these, Allie!
I make these and greek-salad inspired ones as well, and am always surprised at what a big hit they are with kids who would normally shun the salad options, but put it on a stick and suddenly they’re fun!
