Bite Size Caprese Salad | Recipe

Shining sun, patios and cool drinks are finally coming back into season! My favorite time of year is definitely summer since all there is, is warm weather and cool breezes. What I look most forward to during the summers are patio parties. Why? I love gathering people together and spending time with them! Now, you can't have a party without food and that's why I thought these Bite Size Caprese Salads were a perfect finger food to make for your next party! THESE ARE SO EASY I COULD MAKE THEM WITH MY EYES CLOSED! (i'm not kidding)


Ingredients:
- Tomato on the Vine (also known as Campari Tomatoes)
- Mozzarella Cheese
- Fresh Basil Leaves
- Balsamic Vinegar (Optional)

Procedure:
1. Wash your tomatoes, cut off the very top where it attaches to the vine and scoop out the inside until the tomato is hollow.

2. Stuff each tomato with a fresh basil leaf
3. Cut a cube of mozzarella cheese and stuff that into the hollow tomato with the basil leaf (I used a melon baller for this since my mozzarella cheese was so soft! This made the perfect sized ball for the tomato!)
4. If you are serving these right away you can drizzle a little bit of balsamic vinegar over top of these babies or you can leave a side dish of balsamic vinegar to dip (if some of your guests don't like vinegar).
5. Enjoy!

Cheers,
XX
