ANTIPASTO OR CAPRESE ON A STICK
Easy peasy appetizer! On a toothpick, layer good Italian sausage (I love abruzzese!), fresh mozzarella, a sprig of Italian Parsley and top with either a large green olive or kalamata.
Another alternative is a Caprese Stick. I’d leave off the sun-dried tomatoes though – too chewy I think for the skewer.
(from On a Stick)
12 cocktail picks
12 basil leaves
12 cherry tomatoes
12 small fresh mozzarella balls (ciliegine)
6 sun-dried tomatoes, sliced in half
extra virgin olive oil
Pierce a basil leaf, cherry tomato, sun-dried tomato half, and a mozzarella ball with a toothpick (arrange in whatever order floats your little boat). Repeat until you have 12 Caprese sticks. Drizzle olive oil and sprinkle sea salt over the Caprese sticks. Serves 4.
