Easy and delicious these Tomato Mozzarella Skewers are the perfect appetizer for your next party!

  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 30 1x


  • 30 Toothpicks
  • 30 Grape/ Cherry Tomatoes
  • 30 Small Leaves of Fresh Basil (tear large ones in half or thirds)
  • 30 Mini Mozzarella Balls
  • Balsamic Glaze, store-bought or homemade
  • Salt & Pepper


  1. First soak your toothpicks in a bowl of lukewarm water for 30 minutes -1 hour. (This helps prevent the toothpicks from splitting) 
  2. Next just press one toothpick into one grape tomato, one fresh basil leaf, and one mozzarella ball. Place on a serving platter.

You can prepare these one day ahead of time except for the glaze. Drizzle the balsamic glaze just before serving. Keep the skewers covered in plastic wrap in the fridge.
