Caprese Kabobs with Balsamic Glaze

Annnnnd the summer caprese madness continues! You didn’t think I was finished yet, did you??? First it was a classic caprese, followed by a caprese salad with avocado. Now – caprese kabobs! Ah, the endless uses I am finding for the basil from my garden…

These skewered salads could not be easier to put together, and are a great treat to serve to your guests at a summer soiree. Or…any time of the year really. It doesn’t have to be summer to enjoy these!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: food items on a stick are so fun! I don’t know why the simple addition of a wooden skewer can be so endearing, but it definitely is in my book.

Anyway, the next time you’re bringing food to a gathering, think about whipping up a batch of these bad boys! And, if you’re looking for variety, you could also consider making some antipasto kabobs too!

What is your favorite food on a stick?

    Those are so lovely. I think we might have a mutual obsession for caprese. So fresh and tasty. I wish I had a full garden…I’ve been snagging stuff from my brother’s garden every chance I get!!

      Caprese is definitely my obsession right about now. If any recipe or dish at a restaurant has “caprese” in the title, I’ve got to have it!

    Pass me like a dozen of these! I totally agree – food on sticks is just more fun than other food. I make caprese kabobs for just about every party I host!

      I love that they’re so easy to make, but they are always a huge crowd pleaser. The best!
