Leslie W here again. I wanted to share this great appetizer. It is a version of a Caprese salad. I’ve made it a few times at parties and so far it is usually a hit. The ingredients are pretty simple and all you do is gather the ingredients and assemble! Though, I noticed the quality of ingredients really does matter with these. Organic tomatoes and fresh, good quality mozzarella make a difference.
1-2 package of Organic cherry tomatoes (or sugar plum)
1-2 packages boconccini (Trader Joes or Whole Foods)
Salt & Pepper
Rinse tomatoes and basil, and drain boconiccini. Put the tomatoes and boconiccnici onto toothpicks with a small piece of basil inbetween. Arrange on platter and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Drizzle olive oil over platter. These can be made ahead of time and kept in the fridge. Take out 30 minutes before serving and wait until the last minute to drizzle with olive oil.
