Tomato and Fresh Mozzarella sticks
Recipe: Tomato and Fresh Mozzarella sticks
This is one of the easiest appetizers on the planet.
For a cocktail party for 40 I’d plan to serve 20 of these along with the other appetizers.
Cherry tomatoes (3 per person)
Fresh mozzarella balls (the tiny, one inch size, or you can cut larger ones into cubes)
Balsamic vinegar (or preferably balsamic vinegar glaze. It's thicker, but it's harder to find. Lots of stores don't carry it).
Long toothpicks (regular length work too for smaller portion)
All you need to do is thread the cherry tomatoes alternately with the mozzarella balls onto the toothpicks. One tomato, next mozzarella, next tomato etc. With longer picks you'll have three tomatoes and two mozzarella balls per portion.
Refrigerate, covered with plastic wrap until ready to serve.
Just before serving drizzle the balsamic vinegar over the picks already set up on your serving platter. You can also grind a light dusting of sea salt over the top if you desire.
You have pretty, little red and white finger food.
Enjoy. Cheers! Zola
