Yield: 6 Servings 1x


For the caprese skewers:

For the blueberry balsamic glaze:


  1. On each wooden skewer, thread on a blueberry, followed by tomato, basil leaf, mozzarella star (or ball), followed by another basil leaf, tomato and finished with a blueberry.  Feel free to skewer these in any order you’d like!  This recipe is for 12 caprese skewers.
  2. To make the blueberry balsamic glaze: In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine blueberries, balsamic vinegar, honey and lemon juice, mixing well.  As the sauce warms up, mash the blueberries with the back of a spoon or use a potato masher and bring the mixture to a boil.  Turn the heat down a bit and simmer for about 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the blueberries have broken down and the mixture is reduced to half.  The consistency should be syrupy.
  3. Drizzle caprese skewers with blueberry balsamic glaze, serve and enjoy!


*The caprese skewers can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge for up to two days.

*The blueberry balsamic glaze can be stored in an airtight container (I like to use a small mason jar) in the fridge for up to two weeks.
