I absolutely LOVE everything caprese 🙂  It’s one of my all time favorite flavor combinations!  What a fun healthy and festive appetizer for the Holidays.

I can’t believe Christmas is next week! I love everything about Christmas… especially the food. When my family or friends plan a Christmas party, the food is most likely the first thing discussed.

Well, it’s always fun to have a festive red, green, and white appetizer that’s quick and easy. These Mini Caprese Salad Skewers will be a huge hit!

Just be sure to eat one or two yourself before you set them out… I learned the hard way.  They were gone lickety-split just like Santa’s reindeer.

I found these colorful and decorative toothpicks (I wish I would have waited to receive them before taking my photos). They really dressed up these little skewers even more. I also thought these ones were pretty adorable too. Decisions, decisions.

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Pst… I know you’ll be feeling sick after gobbling up lots of unhealthy holiday foods, so come play the next round of The Game-On Health Challenge with us starting on January 6th! It’s really competitive, motivating, and will help you kick off the year right.
