Caprese Bites

I took the idea for these from Authentic Suburban Gourmet and changed them a little to suit me.  I’m not sure if they would be better with salami, but they sure were good without it.  Like little bites of summer.

They were super easy to make, and my mother-in-law had no trouble putting this batch together.

Caprese Bites

1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
1 pint tiny mozzarella balls, halved
fresh basil leaves, halved lengthwise and de-stemmed
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt
toothpicks

1.  Cut cherry tomatoes and mozzarella balls in half.

2.  Take 1 cherry tomato and 1 mozzarella ball and put cut sides together.

3.  Wrap with 1/2 a basil leaf and skewer with a toothpick.

4.  Drizzle with olive oil and sea salt.  Serve!
