Caprese Bites are an easy, last-minute appetizer for end-of-summer snacking or entertaining. Cherry tomatoes are abundant in the late summer, and it’s nearing the end of season for fresh basil, too. Enjoy the classic caprese combination of tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella in this easy appetizer!
This is hardly even a recipe, ya’ll. There’s zero cooking involved. All it takes is some assembly time, and the result is an impressive and fancy-looking appetizer that couldn’t be more simple. I’ve been taking these to parties for years, and they always impress. They are super festive for the holidays also with their red, white, and green colors, but these Caprese Bites are best when cherry tomatoes are actually in season, which is now.
Take up the fancy factor by serving Caprese Bites with extra-virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar, either drizzled over all of them or on the side for dipping. These bites are an easy, quick appetizer - perfect for a Labor Day barbecue, or late summer picnic!
