Mini Caprese Appetizer (Sfizio di Mini Caprese)
Ingredients for 14 mini portions:
14 mini mozzarella cheese balls
14 freshly cut basil leaves
14 small cherry tomatoes
14 tooth sticks
3 to 4 Tbs of exra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Tbs of Gey unrifined Sea Salt grounded in a mortar
1/2 Teaspoon of origan (facultative)
Wash the basil leaves and the cherry tomatoes, take a tooth stick and start to compose the Mini Caprese with in the order: the basil leave folded in 2, the mini mozzarella ball, the cherry tomato.
Place it in a tray and keep on doing the same for all the tooth sticks.
Top with the olive oil, salt and powder with the origan. Serve with little slices of Ciabatta. You can serve the mini portions in one plate.
Or, as I prefer, make single mini portions using finger food cups. You can place the mini caprese on a piece of ciabatta slice. Buon appetito!
