Cutesy Caprese

It's Sunset magazine's idea, again, and a good one because even after the big tomatoes are finished for the season, often one still has producing cherry tomato plants.

You can toss them in a bowl with the small fresh mozzarella ciliegini and basil leaves, or you can thread them like this onto skewers and splash them with vinaigrette.

I fell for the presentation but the taste whisked me back into summer, a bonus!

How pretty! And excellent way to serve them as an appetizer.

Cute. I usually just toss it all together in a bowl but now...

Kitt, thanks, and thanks to Sunset.

Cookiecrumb, I got that plate at Kamei and we love it - use it all the time!

Morgan, yes, especially the tasty part!

Dagny, I fell for the cuteness, too.

I had this idea (too late for this summer) to make a caprese "martini" appetizer with tomato water, ciliegini on a stick, and basil oil all served in a chilled martini glass. It'll have to wait until next Summer out here, but you could still do it.

Peter, that sounds pretty and, yes, still possible out here.
