These mini Caprese appetizers contain all the elements of a classic Caprese salad in appetizer form.
All the elements of a classic caprese salad in an appetizer! I actually wanted to call this “Caprese on a Stick” but thought that really wasn’t quite nice enough for this little appetizer. Make these Mini Caprese Appetizers in advance if you like, but be sure to let them come to room temperature before serving. Much more flavorful that way.
How to Make Mini Caprese Appetizers
Combine the parsley, chives, olive oil, salt and pepper in a bowl. Toss with the mozzarella. Cover and set aside for at least one hour.
Cut tomatoes and basil leaves in half. On a toothpick or short skewer, place one half of tomato, a piece of basil leaf, a mozzarella ball and finish with the second tomato half.
