A very recent acquisition from a visit to my sisters this week. We had a pick n mix lunch and this was the one I prepared, under the supervision of my Brother (in-law)..

What you need…
A tub of cherry tomatoes
A pack of mozzarella balls…available in most good supermarkets.
Authentic dark olives…be careful of the squid ink dyed ones!
Fresh basil
Cocktail sticks
Cracked black pepper
Olive oil…extra virgin.
Serving platter…plate lol

What you need to do…
Cut the tomatoes and mozzarella balls in half.
As in the picture above, skewer the tomato and mozzarella ball with a folded basil leaf sandwiched in-between… And then finish off with an olive.
Place each one onto the platter until you have number you need…single layer!
Sprinkle a generous amount of black pepper.
Drizzle with olive oil… don’t be shy!

What to do next…
Serve with other nibbles or just as they are!
Eat and share…
