I don’t know about you, but my summer calendar seems to stay filled with picnics, backyard barbecues, and even a pool party or two. Those occasions usually require that I bring an appetizer or finger food, so I’ve mastered the easiest appetizer ever for summer gatherings. Now, I’m sharing it with you.
1. Halve tomatoes. Pierce the top of a tomato half with a toothpick. Pierce a piece of cheese. Slide another tomato half onto the toothpick. Arrange on a platter.
2. Chiffonade basil leaves. Sprinkle basil over tomato-mozzarella skewers. Drizzle with balsamic glaze (not pictured above) just before serving.
Note: If you can’t find mozzarella pearls, you can just slice a mozzarella ball into bite-sized pieces
