Mini Mozzarella & Tomato Appetizer 

Servings: 25 appetizers ● Preparation time: 15 minutes ● No cooking time ● Very Easy

This is an adorable take on a classic appetizer. Everyone will love it, especially as it is also very low in calories. I usually sprinkle pesto on the skewers or serve some on the side. You could also replace the pesto with thick Balsamic vinegar mixed with olive oil, salt, and pepper.

25 toothpicks
Salt and pepper
1/2 cup pesto

2 cups cherry tomatoes
8 oz. (1-1/2 cup) mini mozzarella balls
1 oz. fresh basil

1. Halve the tomatoes. Slice the mini mozzarella. Detach the basil leaves.

2. Arrange the appetizers on toothpicks beginning with a tomato half, then a basil leaf followed by a mozzarella slice. Fold the basil leaf over the mozzarella and add a second tomato half at the top.

3. Place on your serving dish sprinkling with a little salt and pepper. Add a small bowl of pesto in the middle of your serving dish, or sprinkle a few drops directly on the little skewers. Voila!
