Cherry Tomato Bites

If you are a fan of anything caprese like me, you’ll probably enjoy these Cherry Tomato Bites.  You can’t get much simpler or tastier than juicy cherry tomatoes, fresh mozzarella cheese, vibrant basil leaves and a touch of olive oil.  To hollow out the tomatoes, I used a paring knife to cut around the top of each one, then used a 1/4 teaspoon to scoop out the insides (this size worked perfectly).  I cut mozzarella balls in half instead of cubing them and wrapped each cheese in a basil leaf before stuffing it into the tomato to capture more of that herby flavor in each bite.   For a little extra flavor, top each tomato with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.  Consider this appetizer for an unofficial end-of-summer party over Labor Day weekend.  They are like a goodbye kiss to summer.
