Caprese Salad Kabobs

Trade in the usual veggie platter for these fun kabobs. In addition to preparing these for get-togethers, I often make these as snacks for my family. And because assembly is so easy, the kids often ask to help. —Christine Mitchell, Glendora, California

    So simple, yet look so elegant. I also sprinkled with sea salt and course ground pepper.

    These are great and always well received. My only addition is to slightly increase the amount of vinaigrette and to sprinkle with a good quality sea salt and coarsely ground fresh pepper.

    I make these often for parties and back yard picnics. As someone stated below, they didn't like biting into the big pieces of basil, I normally thinly slice my basil into ribbons (roll up several leaves at a time and thinly slice). Then right before serving, I sprinkle the ribbons on top of the skewers. The ribbons adhere to the skewers because of the balsamic dressing. I have always gotten good feed back on these when I make them. Thank you for an easy but good recipe.

    We love caprese salad. Serving it on skewers is perfect for entertaining. I double the recommended recipe because they disappear rapidly.

    My family loves a Caprese salad and this was such a fun way to serve it at a recent backyard gathering that was mostly finger foods. I got my kids involved in making the skewers. I will definitely be making this again.

    I loved these - so simple to make and very refreshing. Other members of my family thought they were a little bland and would like more spices. Will definitely make again and hopefully find the right spice combination so we can all enjoy these as much as I did.

    Impressive and Tasty. I bumped up the taste by using one of our favorite salad dressings. It was thick enough to cover all of the ingredients. I suggest chilling the salad for a few hours prior to serving. Then use the drizzle right before serving. Great addition to any Buffet Table.Taste of Home Volunteer Editor. I recommend this one and I will make this one again. Its also open for many tweaks. Adding a cube of meat or switching out the cheese.
