Entertaining doesn't get any easier than these fuss-free Olive Caprese Skewers. Briny olives and fresh Caprese ingredients are a delicious combination.
Turn classic Caprese salad into a delicious hand-held appetizer with these skewers. Easy to make and fun to eat.
There's no chopping, no cooking, no mixing. Just a few ingredients woven on skewers and topped with a flavorful drizzle.
- Tomatoes - Cherry or grape tomatoes work best. Use assorted colors if desired.
- Fresh mozzarella - Look for cherry-sized fresh mozzarella balls called Ciliegine. Both plain and marinated mozzarella can be used.
- Olives - I love black and Castelvetrano olives, but you can use any variety you love.
