These Caprese Veggie Skewers don’t involve so much cooking as assembly and presentation. Presentation takes this simple appetizer to a new level.
Find something in your house that skewers will stand in. I used a vintage pottery flower frog placed inside a retro glass bowl. You can use any kind of frog for flowers or even a drinking glass. Stand whatever you choose in a large bowl or platter and surround with tiny tomatoes.
I soak the bamboo skewers, so guests can’t get any splinters as they slide the food off. I season the mozzarella balls with basil and red pepper flakes but feel free to change the seasonings and make the recipe your own. If you have any leftovers, put them on a bed of arugula or spinach and have a truly delicious Caprese salad. —At Home with Friends
