  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Thread each toothpick with: one tomato, 1/4 of a slice of prosciutto folded into a small square, one mozzarella ball, one basil leaf (folded if it is large), and one more tomato.
  2. Arrange appetizers on a serving platter. Drizzle with your favorite Italian salad dressing.


  • *If marinated mozzarella is not available, you can make your own. Buy bite-size plain mozzarella balls, or cut large fresh mozzarella balls into bite-size cubes. Marinate in olive oil, minced garlic, chopped basil, plain or flavored vinegar, and Italian seasoning for several hours before assembling the appetizers.

Instead of prosciutto, I used hard salami (cheaper, and I cut each slice in half and rolled it up) and I marinated my mozzarella balls ahead of time, and left out the basil and italian dressing ...

Extremely popular at parties! Would suggest using only one tomato, since its quite a mouthful!
