This is one of our favorite snacks and it couldn't be easier. A "Caprese Salad" is usually sliced tomatoes, sliced mozzarella and basil leaves. We just do the same thing on a wooden skewer. We get mozzarella balls, cherry tomatoes, basil leaves and olive oil mixed with seasonings.

We just slide on a mozzarella ball, a cherry tomato, a basil leaf, and then repeat. It usually takes six total for the regular length wooden skewers you can buy at the store; three cheese and three tomatoes. Then we take some good olive oil and stir it up with whatever seasoning blend we happen to have on hand (this was an Italian dressing seasoning blend from Penzey's) and drizzle it over everything. We even add a few sprinkles of Balsamic to it on occasion.
It might seem like a lot of work, but it goes together just as fast as you could make the salad (maybe faster actually since there isn't any slicing involved). Best of all, no forks required! It's like a salad popsicle!
