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.
