I've also made this appetizer for other parties, sans wreath shape. In this case, the basil leaf seems to fit best between the mozzarella and tomato instead of on the end. It's a great colorful addition to any party table.
I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday, and that you all get to enjoy some good quality time with family and friends.
Caprese Christmas Wreath
- mozzarella balls
- grape or cherry tomatoes
- fresh basil leaves
- olive oil
- balsamic vinegar
- salt & pepper
Use the toothpicks to start assembling the wreath sections. You could also randomly change up the order of the mozzarella and tomato as you go to add some variety.
Add a second layer on top of the first to help make the wreath a bit more full.
Whisk together about a tablespoon of olive oil, a teaspoon of balsamic vinegar and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Spoon the mixture over the wreath.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, everyone!!
