Easy to put together, a make ahead and tastes good makes for a winning combination at our house!  I used one of my favouite cheeses, Suputo's mozarella which slices so beautifully and one we enjoy. I was looking for some new appetisers to serve at our next long weekend in September - this is on for sure!
