Caprese Tortellini skewers are fast to assemble and so yummy drizzled with a balsamic vinegar glaze. A healthy keto appetizer idea, 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 for an individual caprese pasta salad.
What kind of mozzarella?
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.
Great appetizer all year
The colors of this yummy caprese skewers appetizer are right on point anytime of year. Fourth of July and summer barbecues -- we love them with fresh summer tomatoes. We love them equally during the winter for their holiday colors. Honestly they're just right for any season!
