Caprese Skewers

Caprese Skewers

My dear friend Kyle was having a small get together for her birthday and she asked me to bring a couple of appetizers. I’ve been wanting to make caprese skewers for a long time so I decided to make them for this occasion. It is the easiest appetizer to make and a huge hit with everyone.

I recently received some olive oil from Atlas Olive Oils in Morocco. They make wonderful extra virgin olive oils that are full of amazing flavor. I’ve been wanting to use them in a recipe for awhile now and decided this would be a perfect dish to use the Les Terroirs De Marrakech. It really made the caprese skewers extra special.

    these look so cute… my basil is having a hard time growing in this heat… I hope I am able to salvage it for some summer tomato recipes!

    When I was taught to make Caprese salad, I was taught to put balsamic vinegar on it. Funny how I never see that in recipes these days.
