The Perfect Appetizer


Hi everyone!  Today I am super excited to share with you this super yummy appetizer that I made for my Dad's birthday!  My Dad usually orders some kind of Caprese Appetizer when we got to Italian restaurants, so I decided to try my hand at re-creating it :)  It was pretty gratifying when my family ate them all and wanted more!  It was the highlight of my Dad's birthday dinner! 

Ingredients:

4 Roma Tomatoes
Fresh Basil
Mozzarella
Balsamic Vinegar
Olive Oil
Salt
Pepper

Directions:

Slice Mozzarella into disk shapes.  Cut tomatoes and stack on the mozarella.  Then add your freshly chopped basil.  Then add salt and pepper to taste.  Then drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.  Then eat it!

Here is another shot of this yummy appetizer (Sorry that it's not the best picture in the world):


This is so easy and yummy!  I love recipes that are easy and make you look cultured :)

  10. This looks really good. I'll bet it would be good on a slice of toasted french bread, then warmed in the oven a bit. Thank you for sharing it and your surprise party for your dad at What We Accomplished Wednesdays. What a nice family you have. Have a great week!

    Hugs,
