Mm I love some caprese so I decided to use my four billion cherry tomatoes from the garden to make some for our Monopoly House Party.
I used the measurements for oregano, salt, and pepper off this recipe, but followed everything else pretty loosely.
After mixing the salt, pepper and oregano, I shook in the cheese (I cut squares from a block of mozzarella). Then I added the tomatoes, also sprinkled in some dried basil, and added some oil and balsamic vinegar. Mixed, covered and refrigerated.
Later I slipped the tomatoes, mozzarella, and leaves of basil (also from my garden) onto the skewers. I placed them on a serving platter and drizzled with balsamic vinegar and oil. Because you can never have too much balsamic? Daddy B disagrees, but he also hates tomatoes so what does he know?
Here’s some pictures of them all finished!
