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 with balsamic glaze! 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?
