When I make these, I don't cut the tomatoes in half and I buy the mini ball mozzarella to make it VERY easy. I use slightly longer skewers and put them in a martini glass rather than on a plate. Sooo cute and DELICIOUS!!!!
♥ Caprese: Take a whole tomato and cut slices into it (about 1/4″ thick) without cutting all the way thru the other side. Insert a slice of fresh mozzarella cheese and a basil leaf in between each slice. Once the tomato is stuffed (it should “fan” out a bit) drizzle olive oil and balsamic vinegar over the top. Drizzle it with your favorite sea salt – and voila! An update to everyone’s favorite caprese salad!
I found these beauties at 'The Girl Who Ate Everything' (blog)-- I'm thinking I must make these with a holiday meal. Aren't they adorable?
