Caprese Bites

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by EmmyDuckie

These are impressive, but almost embarrassingly easy, Think of them as a little appetizer sized Caprese Salad. It makes a huge difference in this recipe if you use good cheese, oil, and vinegar. Adjust the oil and vinegar to your taste, measurements are not exact.

These are divine. A taste of summer in every bite. This recipe is definitely going in the keeper file. I used heirloom cherry tomatoes and found that a small metal measuring spoon worked perfectly for scooping out the seeds. To keep them from rollin around, I cut a small piece off of the bottom of each tomato so they would stand up. Thank you Emmy! Made for ZWT 4 by a Jefe de la Cocina!
