Caprese Skewers

Course Appetizer
Servings 4


  • Colander
  • Picks
  • Bottle for balsamic reduction


  • 2 cups Balsamic Vinegar
  • 10 oz Cherry Tomatoes
  • 8 oz Ciliegine Mozzarella Cheese also called “cherry” size, I like Belgioso
  • 8 oz Clamshell Fresh Basil Leaves
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


Balsamic Drizzle

  • Add balsamic vinegar to a small saucepan over high heat then bring to a boil. Turn heat down to medium then simmer until vinegar is the consistency of thin maple syrup, 20 minutes. You'll know it's done when you can see the bottom of the pan for a second or two after scraping a spatula across. Pour balsamic reduction into a small bowl then set aside to cool. Alternatively you could use store bought balsamic reduction (see notes).


  • Thread a cheese ball onto a toothpick, followed by a basil leaf – fold in half or into quarters if large. Finish with a cherry tomato then place onto a serving platter. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Just before serving, sprinkle skewers with salt and pepper then drizzle with cooled balsamic reduction. Serve immediately.

Hi! I’m Kendra.

For twenty years now, I’ve been using food, prayer, and conversation based around the liturgical calendar to share the lives of the saints and the beautiful truths and traditions of our Catholic faith. My own ten children, our friends and neighbors, and people just like you have been on this journey with me.

If you’d like to learn more about what Catholics believe and why, and to be inspired by saints from every era all over the world, you’ve come to the right place. If you’re feeling overwhelmed with the prospect of how to teach your kids about the faith in a way that’s true, engaging, and lasts a lifetime, we can help!
