Its that time of year when all we seem to do is entertain or be entertained!
I was invited to a festive social gathering and was asked to bring a plate of canapes as my contribution to the evening. I LOVE canapes! So much variety, bite size mouthfuls of tasty offerings and fun!
So- what to make??? I decided on a mini version of a tricolore salad, which is one of my favourites. I really love the combination of flavours and textures. While a traditional tricolore uses avocado along with beef tomatoes, basil and mozzarella, this uses little portions of the ingredients and omits the avocado. Technically, tricolore means 3 colours so it still works. It really is delicious!
To make these canapes you will need the following:
Buffalo mozzarella cheese
Extra virgin olive oil
ground black pepper
Cocktail sticks (split in 2)
Split the cherry tomatoes in half
cut the mozzarella cheese into small bite size pieces
Tear each basil leaf into 3 or 4 pieces
Assemble the various elements onto the half cocktail sticks- half tomato, piece of basil, piece of mozzarella, piece of basil and half tomato
Mix 2 parts balsamic vinegar with 1 part olive oil in a bowl
fill a ramekin with the oil/ vinegar mix and surround with the dressed cocktail sticks
grind a little black pepper over the canapes
Dress to impress and prepare to mingle!!!!!
