Tomato, Basil, Mozzarella Appetizer

Bimonthly our Chicago friends gather together on Wednesday evenings to have Family Dinner, distress from the work week, and catch up on each others’ lives.  A few weeks ago our dinner consisted of spaghetti, salad, bread, and scrumptious desserts.  After volunteering for an appetizer and completely blanking on it until the last minute (whoops), I threw together these Italian dinner appropriate appetizers of tomato, basil, and mozzarella that are perfect for throwing together at the last minute and for parties since the toothpicks make them easy to grab, place on a plate or eat immediately.  Pretty sure they were gone in about five minutes.  Simply stick the mozzarella, basil, and tomato on a toothpick, lay on a serving tray, and drizzle with balsamic vinegar, easiest appetizer EVER!

  1. I love making these! I usually half the tomatoes and mozzarella so they make nice little bite sized spheres and sandwich the basil between. And I agree with Danny, beautiful photos! I enjoy your blog!


    • oooo that’s a good idea! I’m usually making these last minute so I don’t have time for any cutting but that’s a great way to make them even more bite sized and to spread your ingredients a little further! thanks for sharing!
