Caprese On A Stick

not on a stick
Ingredients:

16 cherry tomatoes
16 fresh mozzarella balls
16 fresh basil leaves
3 T olive oil
Cracked black pepper
Tooth picks or bamboo skewers

Directions:

Alternate tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil leaves on toothpicks for appetizers, or on bamboo skewers for a side dish.

Lay on a serving dish and drizzle with olive oil, cover with fresh cracked pepper and/or a turn of the salt grinder.

Notes:

A real Italian Caprese does not use vinegar, but you may like to. If you do, drizzle a about 1 T of your favorite vinegar.

If you prefer, cut large chunks of regular tomatoes and fresh mozzarella for a more rustic appearance.

Do not refrigerate tomatoes as this changes their flavor.
