Mozzarella stuffed cherry tomatoes are not only one of the easiest summer snacks ever, but also one of the most beautiful. There's a well-know Italian salad of sliced mozzarella and tomatoes called a Caprese salad, and this is basically a one-bite version of that.

Makes 32 Mozzarella Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 32 cherry tomatoes
  • salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 oz fresh mozzarella
  • 1/4 cup basil leave chiffonade (leaves rolled up and sliced in thin ribbons)

Preparation:

Slice a very thin piece off the bottom of each cherry tomato so the tomatoes will sit level on a platter. Make another slice on the other end of the tomato and scoop out the seeds inside using a small melon baller

Sprinkle each cherry tomato with salt and pepper. Drizzle in a few drops of olive oil into each cherry tomato. Stuffed each tomato with a cube of the mozzarella cheese. Garnish the tops with the sliced basil. Transfer the stuffed cherry tomatoes onto a serving platter and refrigerate until ready to serve.
