“A great way to serve tomato mozzarella salad. Great presentation. Always a hit. You can find the bite-sized mozzarella at most supermarkets. If they are on the larger side, cut them in half.”

Sooo goooood!! I literally JUST posted this recipe on here as well after finding a similar one a different site. I brought these last night to a picnic and they were a hit! There were none left and I made about 50 of them! I bought everything from Trader Joes-a pack of basil, sweet cherry tomatoes, and mozzarella balls that came in a container with an olive oil/herb marinade. I assembled these like this picture and since the balls were already in a marinade I just spooned a tiny bit of the marinade left in the container over the entire plate! Then I sprinkled a tiny bit of salt and cracked pepper. Also, I used the rest of the basil to cover the plate before arranging these. It's a beautiful presentation! A must have for parties, picnics, wherever!!

I used Ciliegine Mozzarella (the smallest fresh mozzarella balls) but I wish I had been more concerned w/ the quality of the mozzarella instead of the size. The brand I chose was completely flavorless. I can halve a bigger ball but it's hard to add flavor to flavorless mozzarella. ;o) Like so many reviewers, I used the vinegar & oil as a marinade instead of as a dip. Don't skimp on the salt! I think next time I'll either put a little bowl of salt out, to roll the tomatoes in or I'll serve the bites on a bed of kosher salt. Great appetizer for a fettucine alfredo dinner...thanks! SiNsGirl's pic is superb so I saved myself the embarassment of posting a pic. LOL Great job, SiNsGirl!

If you only use 1/2 grape tomato, basil leaf, & 1/2 mozzarella ball on a toothpick, you have a 1 bite snack! Yummy!
