Recipe Fridays: Mini Caprese salads

Continuing the trend of four-ingredient hors d'oeuvres, here's an easy, quick crowd pleaser that looks beautiful arranged on a tray with goat cheese-stuffed mushrooms.

Mini Caprese Salads
Party toothpicks
1 pint grape tomatoes
8 oz package mini fresh mozzarella balls (ideally you want Ciliegine size, which are about the same size as a cherry tomato)
1 bunch fresh basil
Olive oil

Drain mozzarella balls.  Toss mozzarella and tomatoes in enough olive oil to lightly coat, sprinkle with salt and fresh ground pepper.  On each toothpick, thread 1 grape tomato (long way), one basil leaf folded in half, and one ball of mozzarella.  That's it!  You're done!  Arrange mini "salads" on platter and serve.
