Caprese Salad Bites


Caprese Salad Bites

My friend Alisha and I are embarking on a little catering adventure and our first gig was doing a buffet luncheon for our friend Diana’s daughter Morgan’s baptism.  This was one of the nibbles we put together for it and apparently they were a hit, can’t imagine why!  🙂

2 pounds grape tomatoes

2 pounds mozzarella rounds, each slice cut into 4 pieces

handful of basil leaves, cut into strips if large

drizzle of olive oil

drizzle of balsamic vinegar

salt and pepper

1  Push a toothpick into a grape tomato until it is all the way at one end of the toothpick, follow this with a piece of mozzarella then top with a basil leaf or a piece of a basil leaf.

2  Layer bites in a bowl or platter and when finished assembling all, drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar then grind fresh salt and pepper over the top.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.
