Caprese Salad

I'm baaack!  I took quite a long hiatus due to my crazy work schedule, but I am officially back in action in the blogging world.  I've missed it so much!  I promise to have more features on a regular basis from here on out.  Cross my heart.

I figured caprese salad would be a good recipe to feature for my comeback blog post....this appetizer is so easy to throw together, but is certainly not short on flavor.  Caprese salad is also a lighter option and is quite a refreshing turn from the usually heavy and calorie laden appetizers you often see.

Caprese Salad is usually sliced in such a manner that it requires a fork, but this slight twist allows you to combine all of the ingredients on a toothpick so that your guests can grab it and go.


Caprese Salad
Fresh mozzarella
Cherry tomatoes
Fresh basil, chopped
Olive oil
Salt and Pepper

Cut mozzarella into bit sized cubes.  Place tomatoes and mozzarella on toothpicks alternately.  Sprinkle with fresh basil and drizzle with olive oil.  Salt and pepper to taste.

Yes, it's that easy.  But SO great!
