Here is another appetizer that daughter Sherry made for Canada Day, super quick to make, lots of flavour, looks so good , tastes so good and looks like one spent a lot of time making....
30 grape or cherry tomatoes
30 fresh basil leaves
4 ounces part-skim mozzarella cheese, cut into 30 (1/2-inch) cubes
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepperCut tomatoes in half. Thread tomatoes, basil leaves, and mozzarella cheese cubes alternately onto 10 (5 inch) wooden skewers. Place skewers on a serving platter.
Combine vinegar and oil in a small bowl; stir well with a whisk. Drizzle vinegar mixture evenly over skewers, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.Chill until ready to serve.
Easily made in the morning of the event, in fact I think the flavour is better .
One could use Italian salad dressing for the marinade as well.
