CAPRESE PARFAITS (recipe adapted from Apron String Blog)

I can’t wait to serve this dish!  Who doesn’t love a caprese salad?  And this one is easy to eat at a tailgate and just so darn pretty!  I’ll serve in smaller clear PLASIC cups however, but it’ll still be cute.

This recipe looks to serve about 4-6 people, so I’ll probably triple it for the tailgate.

1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
1 cup basil, chopped
16 ounces fresh mozzarella, cut into wedges
1/2 cup prepared pesto (optional; also fine with olive oil alone)
Olive oil
Salt and pepper

If you’re using the pesto, add a few tablespoons of olive oil to make it more pourable. Layer in the order of tomatoes – mozzarella – basil and then drizzle a bit of pesto, if using. If not, this is where a touch of olive oil comes in for each layer. Repeat until glasses are full. Top with more basil.
