Recently, I was looking for quick and healthy appetizers to serve at my friend Darcy’s bon voyage party. It was an afternoon picnic, so I could not just serve chips and cookies. Darcy is very health conscious and believes in watching what she eats and taking care of herself, so I couldn’t just serve chips and cookies to her. When I showed her a photo I had seen on Pinterest of these kabobs, she fell in love with the idea!


These were extremely easy to put together, and I wasn’t so careful to use only the perfect size basil leaves. The cheese was rolled in salt and pepper to add flavor as well. I doubled over large ones as needed. I served mine with a lovely green goddess dip, but they were also delicious just by themselves in a vase. They were a fun, healthy, and easy to gobble down.

Adapted from Everyday Cooking Adventures, 2015.

The dish serves 10 people as an appetiser.

Overall Time: 10 minutes

The following ingredients are used:

  • A total of 14 wooden or metal skewers are required.
  • Fourteen fresh basil leaves, rinsed and dried
  • Fourteen bocconcini, small mozzarella balls
  • Rinsed and dried 14 cherry tomatoes
  • Fresh ground black pepper and salt

The directions are as follows:

  1. Roll the bocconcini once in a small plate of fresh cracked black pepper and salt until they are coated slightly.
  2. Pierce the skewers with one basil leaf, one bocconcini, one tomato, and one more basil leaf. Continue until all skewers are done.
  3. Place in pretty platter or sturdy-bottomed cups and serve. Keep covered with plastic wrap in the refrigerator if not serving immediately. Basil leaves will wilt if left in the sun for long.
