Ingredients

  • Loaf of thick bread (I like the garlic loaf from Fresh Market)
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • pint of tomatoes, cherry, etc.
  • small balls of fresh mozzarella
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • balsamic vinegar
  • Skewers

Directions

  • Trim the crusts from the bread then cut into small cubes.
  • Toss the bread cubes with 4 Tbs. of olive oil and the garlic.
  • Add salt and pepper if you'd like.
  • Place the garlic croutons on a baking tray and cook for ten minutes (turning after 5 minutes)
  • After the croutons have cooled, place one on the skewer followed by a ball of mozzarella cheese, a basil leaf and the tomato on top.
  • Drizzle with oil and vinegar (more vinegar than oil)
  • I like to arrange mine in a vase so it looks similar to a floral arrangement.

Notes

This is such an easy recipe, but it's one of my absolute favorites!
