Looking for something simple, quick, easy, and delicious? Say "hello" to these mini caprese bites from framedcooks.com.
This is the perfect little nibble to make right now when the cherry tomatoes and basil are at their delicious peak.
All you do is slice the tomatoes in half, cut the cheese into tomato size cubes, and spear everything on a toothpick in this order: tomato half, cheese cube, other tomato half, basil leaf. If you have the tomato half with the stem side on the bottom, it will do a good job of standing upright since it is flatter.
Now mix up some balsamic vinegar with some olive oil and some fresh ground pepper and drizzle it over and around the caprese bites. And dig in – pop the whole thing in your mouth at once for the perfect sensation of tomato, cheese and basil.
