These Caprese Skewers Are the Best Healthy Summer Appetizer

They're the ultimate crowd-pleaser—and can be prepped and ready in under 10 minutes.

You can't be fully ready for summer until you get your hands on one of these Caprese Skewers. Inspired by Weelicious, this appetizer combines some of our summer favorites: tomato, mozzarella, and of course all of the in-season fruits. There are so many things we love about this recipe—it's incredibly healthy, super delicious, and did we mention it can be prepped and ready in under ten minutes? Yes, it's really that easy.

Another aspect of this dish that we love is that it can be totally customizable to your liking. Not a fan of cantaloupe? Switch it out for pineapple or honeydew or any other fruit or veggie you love. There is no such thing as a bad addition—anything goes!

  2. Make sure all the fruit and basil is rinsed and place into individual bowls.
  3. Skewer the fruits, mozzarella, tomatoes, and basil in various combinations and patterns.
  4. Place all of the skewers on a large cutting board or platter once completed and drizzle with reduced balsamic vinegar to finish them off.
  5. Serve with extra balsamic vinegar for dipping, and enjoy!
