This is a great way to make caprese that is 'finger food' - it also holds up well at potluck events and is great for vegetarians. Nice thing about this is that you can be as fancy or as basic as you want. Sometimes you may want to cut the grape tomatoes and mozzarella in half when assembling the skewer - putting the cut side towards each other with a piece of basil in between. —pattycake
