Delicious! I bought boconccini (little fresh mozzarella balls) and I marinated them for 2 days in garlic powder, dried basil and oregano and salt and pepper. I then halved them and assembled them with one tomato a strip of fresh basil folded in half, sandwiched between the cheese and tomato. Soooo good and they were all eaten in a matter of minutes and there were only 5 of us eating!

I haven't made this exact recipe but one similar. I find it's easier to eat if you halve the grape tomatoes and put the cubed cheese with the half piece. I also marinate the mixture for a few hours in the olive oil and add some dried herbs for extra flavor. Also add a few sprinkles of crushed red pepper flakes for color - doesn't really make it that spicy. I rub the flakes in the palms of my hands to crush a little more and release the flavors too. Be sure to buy the best mozzarella cheese you can find.

I made these on Christmas Eve and they were a huge hit! I changed the recipe to flavor it up a bit: add extra basil (i actually used frozen!), a tiny bit of garlic powder and red pepper flakes. I marinated this for about 30 minutes. I also recommend using small balls of mozzarella, halving them and then skewering with a whole grape tomato. Love this recipe... it is SO easy! I will definitely be making it again!
