Salad on a stick

Here's a great way to use all those fabulous cherry and grape tomatoes that we're seeing in markets this month. It's a tiny Caprese salad on a stick--and so easy to eat without a knife, fork or plate.

Simply cut the tomatoes in half and put a cube of good fresh Mozarella cheese in between them, and a leaf of basil or two. Then drizzle with some good olive oil and Balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper.

I've been using the freshest tomatoes from my pots in the back yard supplemented with market finds and taking these to summer potlucks.  I just pile them on a long plate and garnish with some additional basil leaves.

They have been a big hit.


  1. Oh my goodness this looks so tasty.

    It has been so hot here that my tomatoes in my pots are having a hard time.
    They usually take the very hot summer off then start to produce again.
    But we are having a very hot August. They are just hanging on.

    cheers, parsnip
