Mozzarella and Tomato Bites

Tomato and cheese. This pair is like peanut butter and jelly, ketchup and mustard, macaroni and cheese. Rarely one without the other. This time though, who needs the pizza crust, panini bread, or crackers to accompany this combo? They certainly do fine on their own.

These bite sized servings are perfect for entertaining!

IngredientsMakes about 2o skewers
Prep time: 15 minutes (not including husking)
Cook time: none

20 grape tomatoes
10 fresh mozzarella balls, halved
20 wooden skewers
Olive oil
Balsamic vinegar
4-5 basil leaves
Salt and pepper


Cut mozzarella balls in half.  On each skewer, add half a mozzarella ball. Follow with a thin slice of basil leaf. Next, add a whole grape tomato; then, the another half mozzarella ball.

In a separate dish, mix 2 parts oil and 1 part vinegar, and salt and pepper. Pour mix over skewers and let soak. Season with salt and pepper.

About Humble Foodie

While we both love to eat well, life as AmeriCorps volunteers doesn’t afford us the budget to try every new restaurant and type of cuisine. With many post-graduate expenses and limited financial resources, what’s a foodie to do? The answer is here, at The Humble Foodie. Instead of spending our hard-earned cash paying other people to cook for us, we’re spending as frugally as possible making delicious meals at home.
