This Caprese Skewer Wreath served with a bowl of pesto in the middle makes such a festive appetizer for the holidays! Perfect for a party!



  • 3040 small wooden skewers (about 2-3″) or longer wooden toothpicks
  • 3 cups of grape or cherry tomatoes
  • 8 oz. mini mozzarella cheese balls (called bocconcini)
  • 3 oz. basil pesto
  • garnish with fresh basil and fresh rosemary


  1. To each skewer add 2 mozzarella balls and 2 grape tomatoes. Alternate the way you have them on the skewer because it will look nice as you assemble the wreath.
  2. Get a round serving platter. Place a small ramekin bowl in the center and assemble prepared skewers in the shape of a wreath. Depending on the size of your platter you may need to do a double layer of skewers. Next, stick pieces of fresh rosemary and basil in random places underneath the skewers to make it look like a christmas wreath.
  3. Store in refrigerator until ready to serve. (can be made one day ahead of time)
  4. When ready to serve fill the small ramekin up with basil pesto and serve.
