Mozzarella stuffed cherry tomatoes are not only one of the easiest summer snacks ever, but also one of the most beautiful. These miniature Caprese Salads are the perfect appetizer for a backyard bash!

What You'll Need

  • 32 cherry tomatoes
  • salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 ounces fresh mozzarella
  • 1/4 cup basil leaves (chiffonade—leaves rolled up and sliced in thin ribbons)

How to Make It

  1. Slice a very thin piece off the bottom of each cherry tomato so the tomatoes will sit level on a platter. Make another slice on the other end of the tomato and scoop out the seeds inside using a small melon baller.
  2. Sprinkle each cherry tomato with salt and pepper. Drizzle in a few drops of olive oil into each cherry tomato. Stuffed each tomato with a cube of the mozzarella cheese. Garnish the tops with the sliced basil.
  1. Transfer the stuffed cherry tomatoes onto a serving platter and refrigerate until ready to serve.
