Caprese Salad Kebabs with Spinach-Basil Pesto

These days, picnic fare is often equated with “portable” packaged foods, like hot dogs and potato chips, that get old quick. Instead, spice up your picnic basket this season with fresh sides, like tomato-mozzarella skewers served with tangy pesto. For a touch of Italy, serve this simple side that requires just a few ingredients and comes together in minutes. For an easy make-ahead addition, whip up a tangy pesto to serve alongside tomato-mozzarella skewers.

Test Kitchen Tip

Use bamboo skewers for these kebabs, but for easy eating, trim them down to 6-inch lengths.


Pulse spinach, basil, Parmesan, pine nuts, vinegar, and salt in a food processor until a paste. With processor running, drizzle in oil until combined.

Thread skewers with tomatoes and mozzarella. Serve skewers with pesto for dipping.
