Tomato Mozzarella Caprese

Tidbits:  I don’t ever measure any of this stuff, so the amounts of ingredients are up to you, these are just suggestions. Also, I found “on the vine grape tomatoes” which were amazing. But you can use any kind of tomato you prefer (cherry tomatoes, slices of plum tomato, etc).

8-10 grape tomatoes

2-4 oz. fresh mozarella

2 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil

2 Tbsp. Balsamic Vinegar

1 tsp. italian seasoning

1/2 tsp. dry basil, or a few leaves of chopped fresh basil

1 clove fresh garlic, minced or finely chopped

Salt & pepper (freshly ground, not that shaker stuff!)


1.      Put tomatoes in bowl, and add desired amount of cheese. I use a melon baller to scoop the cheese into small balls.

2.      Add the Extra Virgin Olive Oil, seasonings, garlic, and salt & pepper and gently mix.

3.      Allow to sit in the refrigerator for 30-60 minutes for best flavor.

4.      When you are ready to serve, add the balsamic vinegar and mix again.
