I am always looking for no cook easy but flavorful appetizers for buffets, meetings and parties. This one is a fast but flavorful one. Using fresh basil is required as it high quality , tomatoes, olive oil, salt and pepper

Yum! These were like little bite-sized Caprese salads. Fantastic! After removing the inside of the tomatoes, I let them drain upside down on a cloth while I prepared the filling. I cubed fresh mozzarella to combine with the basil strips and used just pepper inside the tomatoes. I used tiny basil leaves for the basil garnish. Thanks for sharing! L-O-V-E Event 2012
