Bite-Sized Caprese Appetizers

So this recipe is hardly reinventing the wheel–if you haven’t eaten it, you’ve almost certainly seen it. But sometimes some things are so good and so seasonally perfect that you just need a little reminder.

Ingredients
24 grape tomatoes
24 fresh mini mozzarella balls
24 fresh basil leaves
1 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 clove minced garlic
kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper
24 toothpicks

Instructions
Place a tomato, basil leaf, and mozzarella ball on each toothpick. Place on a serving plate or tray.
Whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, and garlic and drizzle over the appetizers. Sprinkle with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
To eat, bite everything off the toothpick all at once.
