Appetizers

Caprese Sticks

1

Caprese (pronounced cuh-pray-say) is an Italian salad made of sliced buffalo mozzarella, sliced tomatoes and basil leaves drizzled with sea salt and olive oil. These caprese sticks are the cutest of the cute little appetizer bites and the best part is, they look like you spent some time on them when you really didn't! They are tasty too (that's the name of the game, right?!) Enjoy!
