Tomato and Mozzarella Bites

Easy appetizers. ;-)


  • 10 grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 20 small basil leaves or leaf sprigs of cilantro
  • 20 mozzarella cheese, cut in small bite size pieces (use quality cheese for best flavor)
  • Ad
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 20 toothpicks


Spear half of a tomato, a piece of basil or cilantro sprig, a mozzarella bite and another half of a tomato on each toothpick. Mix the vinegar, oil, salt and pepper together in a small bowl to serve as a dipping sauce.

Yum! I bet balsamic vinegar would also be good for this recipe, with the tomatoes and basil. Great for a party or just for snacking.

Hi Jess, I didn't even think about that! Next time I'll try the balsamic and maybe a second small bowl of rice vinegar with sesame oil just to see how it would taste! Thanks!

Both of these sauce ideas are much better than the usual mayonaise based dips. I'm always looking for tasty and healthier alternatives.
