What's to Eat?? Caprese Bites

Remember my other post(here) about how I was going to make juicy grape tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, fresh and awesome smelling basil, drizzled with balsamic, two ways? The first way was a pasta route, heartier, fuller, but this way is a caprese bite.  Perfect for when guests come over  or just when you want a quick and refreshing snack! The best part is that it is done in THREE, yes, 3 easy steps! And only has 5 ingredients! (HINT HINT Boys, sure way to impress your date without having to do that much work!)
What you will need::
  • Grape tomatoes, 1/2 cup cut in half or quartered
  • 1/2-1/3 cup of basil, cut in half or thirds
  • 1/2-1 cup mozzarella balls
  • Balsamic glaze to drizzle 
  • Toothpicks for decor and fun!

Start off by cutting your washing your basil and grape tomatoes and then cut your tomatoes.

Drizzle on some balsamic glaze over your mozzarella to your desired liking.

And now you can finish it off however you like! I like to start off first with the mozzarella, than adding a basil piece, and finishing it off with the grape tomato, with the cut side facing down(putting it on the toothpick last) so it stabilizes your bite. 

Is your mouth salivating right now? I'm about to devour all of this myself! Sorry guests!
Check back Monday for a floral and fun Mani Monday.
Enjoy the rest of your beautiful weekend!
ps, don't forget to =)
