Caprese Pops

I was on appetizer duty for an Italian family dinner this past weekend and my ever faithful trio of tomato, basil and mozzarella was an obvious choice. This is a great way to enjoy the flavors of Caprese in bite sized portions with a fun presentation.

There's no wrong way to eat Caprese.

Caprese Pops

Grape tomatoes, cut in half horizontally
Ciliegine (small fresh mozzarella balls)
Fresh basil leaves
Good olive oil
Kosher salt
Bamboo skewers

Place fresh mozzarella balls in a bowl and drizzle with olive oil and salt and toss to coat. 

Arrange pops as shown in the photo above. Serve on a platter.
