Caprese Salad on a stick
I love Caprese salad! This was a great appetizer, of course I couldn't only eat one. :-)
1 pt grape tomatoes
Fresh mozzarella balls
For the dressing:
1 clove garlic
Depending on the size of your basil leaves, you may be able to use 1 basil leaf per "stick". For me, I had to cut some of mine into large pieces. All you do is thread the tomato, cheese, and basil on a toothpick. Easy peasy! I laid them all out on a plate and drizzled the dressing across them. If you can't find mozzarella balls, you can use any type of fresh mozzarella. I bought mine in the log form and cut it into cubes. It worked just as well.
Crush 1 clove of garlic and put it in your dressing bottle. Then pour in your oil and vinegar and shake it up. I use about 3 parts oil to 1 part vinegar. If you like it less tangy, use less vinegar.
