cherry tomato bites

Ingredients:

  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • Fresh mozzarella, cubed
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • Basil, julienned

Cut a small slice off the end of each tomato so that they sit level. (Make sure not to cut too big of a slice or else the cup won’t have a bottom.)

Make another slice on the opposite side of the tomato and scoop out the pulp inside using a mellon baller or small spoon. Be careful not to puncture the skin on the bottom.

Season the tomato cups with salt and pepper. Place a cube of mozerella in each cup. Drizzle olive oil over the stuffed tomatoes. Garnish each bite with a bit of basil. Transfer the bites onto a serving platter and chill until ready to serve.
