Cherry Tomato Bites

Cherry Tomato Bites

By Carrie's Experimental Kitchen

Here's another simple appetizer I made for Easter, but they would also be wonderful any time of year. (Hmmm...I bet Mom would love these on Mother's Day!) I just love the classic flavors of tomato, basil and mozzarella cheese, don't you?

Serving Size: 12

Ingredients:

  • 12 cherry tomatoes

  • 6 CILIEGINE fresh mozzarella (the small mozzarella balls)

  • 6 fresh basil leaves

  • balsamic vinegar

  • extra virgin olive oil

  • kosher salt

  • fresh ground black pepper

​Directions:

  1. Cut the tops off of each tomato and hollow out the inside using a small, sharp knife. Cut each mozzarella cheese ball in half and place a half inside each tomato. Chop the fresh basil and add a little to each tomato and place on a serving dish. When ready to serve, sprinkle the top with salt and pepper, then drizzle on the vinegar and olive oil. Makes 12.
