Crostini Alla Caprese

Crostini Alla Caprese created by threeovens

Crostini are made from thinly sliced Italian or French bread and lightly toasted. These are topped with a version of Caprese Salad (mozzarella, fresh basil, tomato). These can be served like a canape or threaded onto small skewers. You should be able to find the marinated mozzarella balls in the deli department. If not, use plain mozzarella balls rolled in oregano flakes or small pieces of mozzarella.

    I make one just like this except I use balsamic vinegar with the olive oil and spicy fresh basil and regular basil. Super fresh and delicious!
