Caprese Tortellini Skewers — fresh Buffalo Mozzarella, grape tomatoes, basil, and cheese tortellini threaded on skewers are a delicious appetizer/salad for your next meal or gathering! I first made these little kabobs with my friend Kayla, who always has great ideas for dinners and parties! With tomatoes readily available, it’s always the perfect time to make and serve these easy little salads on a stick!
Caprese and Tortellini skewers are fast to assemble and so yummy drizzled with a balsamic vinegar glaze. Their bright colors scream “Eat me! I’m healthy!” And they can fit into your menu plan just about anywhere! Salad? Appetizer? Lunch? Dinner? Brunch? They’re all good times to pull out this quick recipe.
The fresh ingredients make this appetizer shine. Buffalo Mozzarella often comes in a pre-sliced log which is easy to quarter to make chunks.We purchased this Buffalo Mozzarella in the deli section at Sam’s Club. Each slice is one ounce–cut each slice in a quarter and you’ll have exactly half an ounce of cheese per skewer.
The colors of this yummy appetizer are right on point anytime of year. We love them with summer tomatoes, and we love them equally during the winter for their holiday colors. Honestly they’re just right for any season!
