Football season is in full swing, and if you're a fan, you're probably doing some serious tailgating, either at home or at a game. But tailgating doesn't have to be all about the chicken wings, brats and burgers! In fact, there are plenty of meatless options that are excellent pre-game snacks. What's wrong with eating veggies at a football-viewing party? Here's an excellent, quick and mess-free recipe that is both healthy and delicious for your next tailgating party:
Caprese salad skewers
- Grape or cherry tomatoes
- Mini fresh mozzarella balls
- Fresh basil leaves
- Balsamic vinegar
- Toothpicks or plastic party picks
These are so easy and quick to make! First, cut your tomatoes in half width-wise so they will have a flat surface to sit on. Skewer a tomato, flat side down, followed by a basil leaf and a mini mozzarella ball. Set each skewer on a sheet or serving plate with wax paper. When you're done, drizzle balsamic vinegar over the top of them, et voilà!
