Caprese Salad Bites

 Caprese Salad Bites

I know!  Don’t feint.  I have a post that isn’t a dessert recipe.  It doesn’t happen too often, but when it does, it’s a good one.  Because typically I just think “who cares about this recipe?”  But this one is definitely a keeper.  It was perfect at the staff get together I hosted and everyone loved these.

Caprese Salad Bites


  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Mozzarella "pearls"
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • Toothpicks


  1. In the inside of one of the basil leaves, add a cherry tomato and a mozzarella "pearl" (which is just a small ball shaped mozzarella piece. If you can't find these, cut into chunks.)
  2. Skewer them with a toothpick, making sure you get the basil leaf on both ends to hold it in place.
  3. When ready to serve, drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
  4. Enjoy!
