Who doesn’t love fresh mozzarella and tomatoes? At Italian restaurants, I enjoy a small caprese salad every once in a while. I also LOVE fresh mozzarella on an authentic margherita pizza. I decided to put together a small plate of these fresh looking skewers for a pool party/bbq at a friend’s house. The fresh mozzarella, red grape tomatoes, and sprinkles of basil made them look very festive and fun to eat.
15-20 Grape Tomatoes
8 oz of Fresh Mozzarella, cubed
2 T of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Sprinkling of dried basil
Black Olives (optional)
Stir the olive oil and dried basil together.
Toss the mozzarella cubes, tomatoes, and olives in the basil/oil mixture.
Arrange the cheese cubes, tomatoes, and olives on skewers.
These could make a fun party appetizer, side dish, or afternoon snack.
