Tomato, Basil Mozzarella Skewers


I threw my Dad a surprise Birthday party on Saturday & it was a hit.  It was the first picnic of the season.  It was so nice to sit outside under tents, have the grill cooking, and have a blast.  This got me thinking to my favorite party appetizers.  I like making appetizers that I can eat and I will not feel guilty about.  One of my favorite appetizers that is so simple and a hit at all parties is Tomato, Basil Mozzarella Skewers.  You can easily make for a small group or for an extremely large group and it’s virtually no preparation required.  I got this recipe from my future mother-in-law.


  • Bamboo skewers
  • Package of grape tomatoes
  • Fresh basil
  • Fresh mozzarella balls (bocconcini)
  • Balsamic vinaigrette dressing


  1.  Skewer 1 grape tomato, a basil leaf, and a mozzarella ball. Repeat to desired amount of skewers.
  2.  Make sure the sharp edge of the skewer is not sticking out of the tomato.
  3. Place on a large tray and drizzle balsamic vinaigrette dressing on top.
  4. Refridgerate until ready to serve.
