fyi: bite size caprese

Prepare your tastebuds, my friends. As I mentioned earlier, my cooking fever begin with this pin on Pinterest…and below is how it turned out!

This is what I’m calling Bite Size Caprese, the perfect party appetizer! It’s both beautiful in food presentation and a flavor bomb in your mouth.

INGREDIENTS I USED:
Tomatoes:
Mini Pearl Grape Tomatoes from Trader Joe’s
Basil:
Fresh Basil from Trader Joe’s
Mozzarella
: Mozzarella Cheese Log from Trader Joe’s (do you see a pattern?! One-stop shopping…gotta love it!)
Balsamic Vinegar: Balsamic from We Olive (this is no ordinary balsamic…it’s thick and has a deep flavor that is both sweet and tangy. YUM!)
Olive Oil:
Olive Oil from Trader Joe’s


TIPS:

  • Instead of the cheese log, you can buy mozzarella balls (usually sold in a tub with water). I needed more mozzarella so I bought the log.
  • If your basil leaf is too large, slice it in half lengthwise to make two basil leaves.
  • Drizzle the olive oil and basalmic vinegar after you arrive at your party destination so you don’t have to worry about spilling the oil/vinegar your car dirty while driving.
  • Sprinkle some kosher salt and pepper after the oil/vinegar
