    Caprese Bites

    Caprese Bites

    Serves 6

    Caprese Bites are fast and easy-to-make, plus they are super-cute! Eerybody loves them!

     

    What You’ll Need:

    A Serving Platter

    Fancy Toothpicks

    A Small Ramekin (For the Platter – to Discard the Picks)

    A Sharp Kitchen knife

     

    Ingredients:

    12 Baby Mozzarella Balls, Known As Bocconcini

    12 Basil Leaves

    12 Sun Dried Tomatoes in Oil, Well Drained

    12 Black Olives to Decorate the Plate

     

    How To Put It Together:

    1) Set your ingredients out on your work surface in a little assembly line. Slice our baby mozzarella balls in half. One-by-one, pick up half a mozzarella ball & skewer it onto your toothpick. Now add your sun-dried tomato, your basil leaf & top it off with the second half of the mozzarella ball. Place your Capresé Bite on your serving platter. Repeat this process for each bite.
     
    2) To decorate the platter, I like to arrange the Capresé Bites in a circular pattern and place the black olives in the center.
     
    3) Serve and enjoy!
     

    Nina’s Tasty Tip:

    Sun-dried tomatoes are nutritious & delicious. All the nutrients have been concentrated into one delicious little bite! One ounce offers you almost half of your RDA of vitamin C for the day!!
