Caprese Salad Bites

Here is another vegetarian appetizer for your New Year’s Eve party tonight.  It can’t get much simpler than this. 

A simple Caprese salad skewered onto toothpicks makes a great appetizer for your New Years buffet.

Cherry tomatoes
Mozzarella balls
Marinated artichoke hearts
Basil leaves
Italian dressing or balsamic vinegar with Italian seasoning

Cut your tomatoes in half for a flat base.  Cut your Mozzarealla balls in half.  Drain your artichokes and cut to the same size as the tomatoes. 

Marinate your tomatoes, mozzarella balls, artichokes and basil leaves in a baggie with a little Italian dressing or seasoned balsamic vinegar for an hour. 

Skewer each ingredient on a toothpick starting with the tomato on the bottom for the base. 

When you serve them don’t forget to bring a small bowl for guests to dispose of their toothpicks.

Here is hoping you have a safe and warm New Year’s Eve.  Be happy and may God bless you and yours all the New Year.
