A classic, easy appetizer that will add plenty of color and visual interest to any table
Think of a skewered take on the caprese salad classic that vegetarians and carnivores will both enjoy. This may be the easiest of the three recipes to whip up. I like to use a whole block of fresh mozzarella and break it into chunks rather than using the little balls that come in the liquid (somewhere, someone is whispering ‘that’s what she said’ while reading this). I feel like the block has a much better flavor and the torn pieces just visually look better in my humble opinion. For the tomatoes I'd suggest the mini heirloom version that are multicolored for additional visual interest. I’ve seen them at Trader Joe’s, Giant, Whole Foods and I’m sure other stores carry them.
