Watermelon Caprese Skewers with Balsamic Glaze | No Thanks to Cake

This recipe is perfect for any summertime event. The combination of watermelon, tomatoes, and mozzarella are a crowd favorite, made slightly savory by the addition of basil and balsamic glaze.


  • 8 watermelon balls
  • 8 grape tomatoes, any color
  • 1 small pkg. basil leaves
  • 8 bite-sized mozzarella balls
  • salt and pepper
  • balsamic glaze, for drizzle


  • Use a watermelon baller to create the watermelon balls for this recipe.
  • Once you have your watermelon balls created, it's time to assemble. You'll need a skewer, long toothpick, or other mechanism to thread your skewers.
  • Add your watermelon first, then thread your basil leaf capturing only one end of the leaf. Next add a mozzarella ball, then thread the other end of your leaf. Finally, add a grape tomato. Set aside and repeat until all skewers have been filled. Note; I used yellow grape tomatoes to create a color contrast, but you could easily use red if you prefer.
  • Sprinkly lightly with salt and pepper and place in the refrigerator (covered) until it's time to serve.
  • Right before you serve the skewers, drizzle lightly with balsamic glaze.
