Okay so lets be honest..this is not really a recipe. I mean it looks way more impressive than the skill actually required to make it. It is however a simple, easy, delicious appetizer that is perfect for a picnic or BBQ. It is like a Caprese salad all in one bite! There are no amounts just make as many as you need....simple. These are great not only for a party or an appetizer, but for a healthy snack.
cherry tomatoes - hollowed out...remove all of the pulpy seeds
soft fresh mozzerella - I used Ciliegine (which is simply small cherry sized balls of mozzerella) but you can use 1 large ball and cut the pieces to fit inside the tomatoes
Fresh basil leaves
splash of balsamic vinegar (optional)
salt and pepper
Core or hollow out the tomatoes. Stuff a Basil leaf into the hollow, then tuck a Ciliegine or a piece of soft fresh mozzerella ontop of the leaf. season with salt and pepper to taste. top with a tiny drizzle with olive oil...or with olive oil and vinegar mix.
