Caprese Bites

Having quick appetizer recipes that use simple ingredients is so helpful. I like not having to search for something to put together for a last minute occasion. It is even better when the ingredients are items that I normally have in my kitchen. We enjoy Caprese salad all year long. When we were brainstorming ideas for appetizers, we starting talking about Caprese salad. That conversation evolved into the question-could we make it bite size? Imagine a caprese salad in just one bite? Yum! These Caprese bites are light and refreshing making them the perfect appetizers for a New Year’s Party.

This is one of my favorite recipes because with just a few ingredients, you can whip these together in no time at all. These Caprese bites are full of color and are beautiful on a table of appetizers.

Serve these up with a drizzle of olive oil and salt or a balsamic vinegar glaze or enjoy them all by themselves.

  4. Take an extra long toothpick and insert one tomato, the cheese with basil wrapped around it and then another tomato

  6. It is honestly that simple and yet incredibly delicious
