An Improvised Appy...

I needed another appetizer to serve to my guests for Easter! I had mini mozzarella balls, grape tomatoes, pesto, garlic and white bread, so I decided to make these cute little Insalata Caprese Bites! My guests really loved them! I think I'll make them more often!
Insalata Caprese Bites

sliced white bread, toasted

fresh garlic
prepared pesto, jarred or homemade
small mozzarella balls
grape tomatoes
balsamic vinegar reduction, topping optional

For the bread squares I toasted some white bread and rubbed each slice, on both sides, with fresh cut garlic. Then I cut off the crusts and cut the toast into one inch squares and just dotted each piece with pesto. I cut each mozzarella ball and each grape tomato in half. Then I just assembled the appy on sandwich picks and drizzled them with a balsamic reduction just before serving. I made about 3 dozen...these were gobbled up real fast!


  1. These are so cute and perfect for summer parties! Great idea Lillian!

    1. Thank you so much Val! Yes, I'll probably be making them again this summer...probably for Father's Day!
