I was lucky enough to visit Italy last year, and to have real Italian Caprese Salad Bites. The Italians do eat this nearly every day, and it is so refreshing.  Even better if you grow your own basil and cherry tomatoes so that they are super fresh from the garden.  Although the bocconcini isn’t as good here in Australia, there are some very nice versions – like Caprese Salad Bites!  Enough to get your ‘Italian’ on!

Method

  1. Try and choose cherry tomatoes that are about the same size as the baby bocconcini - if not, cut them in half - and this will allow the bite sized salads to stand up on their own.

  2. Slide onto the toothpicks the cheese, first, then the basil, finally the tomato.  Keep refrigerated until they are required and serve with a small bowl of balsamic so you can dip them in as you eat them!  Deliciously easy!

Recipe Hints and Tips:

  • Best made fresh on the day they are to be eaten.  Keep chilled in the fridge covered in plastic wrap.
  • Caprese Salad Bites are not suitable for freezing.
