"My older daughterJennifer came up with this lovely appetizer due to her love of fresh mozzarella and it is very tasty. Could be used as a tasty lunch too. I like it plain but you can serve them on crackers."

This is so simple and so delicious. I used half a grape tomato on each, speared them with a toothpick. They really went over well and all disappeared. 21 May 2015 Served again for perhaps the fourth time - got raves. Love this easy MMm recipe

I did not use fresh mozzarella but this was still delicious with regular mozza pieces. This will be made often!!
