Caprese Salad Bites



i am trying to use up my fresh herbs before they go by the way of fall's colder temperatures. pair that with the fact that i seem to have an abundance of cherry/grape tomatoes and this quick, easy appetizer is a no-brainer.


it's a great bite to throw together for unexpected guests or an impromptu happy hour. a cherry tomato, basil leaf, and small cube of mozzarella with a splash of  balsamic vinegar and you have a caprese salad on a toothpick.



Caprese Salad Bites

fresh basil leaves
cherry or grape tomatoes
fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into small cubes
tooth picks
balsamic vinegar

spear the very end of a basil leaf with a tooth pick. add tomato and cheese and finish with other end of basil leaf. repeat with all basil and place on plate. gently spoon balsamic vinegar over each bite. enjoy.
