I love the classic combination of tomatoes, mozzarella and basil in these bite-size appetizers. The juicy explosion you get when you pop one into your mouth is the genuine taste of springtime.

Ingredients

  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 pound fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
  • 6 fresh basil leaves
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

Directions

  1. Scoop out and discard pulp of cherry tomatoes. Invert tomatoes onto paper towels to drain.
  2. In a food processor, combine the cream, mozzarella cheese, basil and garlic; cover and process until blended.
  3. Cut a small hole in the corner of a pastry or heavy-duty resealable plastic bag. Fill with cheese mixture.
  4. Turn tomato halves over; drizzle with vinegar. Pipe cheese mixture into tomatoes. Refrigerate until serving.
