Tortellini Salad

I love tortellini salad. I love how tortellini tastes in a nice balsamic vinaigrette. I also love Caprese salad so why not combine a Caprese salad with a tortellini salad!

Caprese Skewers

Can a Caprese salad be made into Caprese skewers? If I was to use a balsamic marinated mozzarella, Caprese skewers can be possible. That would be great finger food. How can I make Caprese skewers to the next level?

Skewers Tip

Funny story about these Caprese skewers, when I went to make this tortellini salad recipe, I could not find my skewers. I searched everywhere, tore the kitchen up, but there were no skewers to be found.

Ms. Dee here spots a box of linguini in the cupboard. So I used it for skewers for this tortellini skewer appetizers and it worked! Uncooked linguini noodles work so well for a skewer recipe. Plus:

  • It is edible, in case you bite it. 
  • It is sturdy and easy to handle.
  • Works great in a pinch!

Tortellini Skewers

The idea was taking tortellini salad and combining it with a Caprese salad. Tortellini skewers are one way to make Caprese skewers to the next level. This could be a deconstructed tortellini salad on a skewer.

Fresh basil, cherry tomatoes, with balsamic marinated cheese really make these tortellini skewers pop with the flavor.  Mmm, these Caprese skewers were so delicious and perfect for a picnic.
