Caprese Salad Appetizer

This dish literally screams Summertime to me.
Firm bite sized tomatoes with the perfect juicy pop when you bite into them, paired with smooth and cool mozzarella cheese and a torn pieces of basil to add that little something extra to the flavor combo. 

With a 5 minute prep time, this is perfect for entertaining or just dining alfresco. 

What more can you ask for after getting home from work to help you unwind. 

A glass of white wine of course!  
Sorry this is so short but I'm off to sit on my deck and do just that!

15 small basil leaves (mine were very large so I used 8 and tore them in half)
15 small balls of fresh mozzarella (ciliegine)

Pierce the tomato, basil piece and mozzarella with the cocktail stick.  Repeat until all ingredients are used.  Arrange on platter and drizzle with olive oil, balsamic vinaigrette and salt & pepper just before serving
