Caprese Salad Bites

Caprese Salad Bites

These are perfect for holiday parties, and really easy to put together for a large crowd.

This is also one of my favourite snacks to take to the beach.

Caprese Salad Bites
 
Ingredients
  • Tomato & Mozzarella Caprese Skewers
  • Makes about 16
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • ¾ ounce fresh basil
  • 4 ounces ciliegine (cherry-sized) mozzarella
  • 1 tablespoon pesto, optional
  • 1 to 3 teaspoons olive oil, optional
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Instructions
  1. Wash and dry the tomatoes. Fold a large basil leaf around the tomato, then spear on a 4-inch-long skewer or toothpick. Add a mozzarella ball to the toothpick. Repeat.
  2. If desired, whisk the pesto with enough olive oil to form a thin sauce, and drizzle over the skewers. Sprinkle a little salt and pepper over them.
