Cherry Tomato Bites

Here another simple appetizer I made for Easter, but they would also be wonderful any time of year.(Hmmm...I bet Mom would love these on Mother's Day!) I just love the classic flavors of tomato, basil and mozzarella cheese don't you?

Cherry Tomato Bites
Recipe by Cook Like James

12 Cherry Tomatoes
6 Cigliene Fresh Mozzarella (the small mozzarella balls)
6 Fresh Basil Leaves
Balsamic Vinegar
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Kosher Salt
Fresh Ground Black Pepper

Cut the tops off of each tomato and hollow out the inside using a small, sharp knife. Cut each mozzarella cheese ball in half and place a half inside each tomato. Chop the fresh basil and add a little to each tomato and place on a serving dish. When ready to serve, sprinkle the top with salt and pepper, then drizzle on the vinegar and olive oil.
Makes 12.
