Prep Time 15 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 24 Canapés


  • 24 whole grape tomatoes
  • 16 oz mozzarella pearls
  • 1 bunch basil
  • toothpicks


  1. Rinse and dry the tomatoes. Slice a small section off one end of each tomato allowing each tomato a flat end to stand on. Stand each tomato up on a cutting board. 

  2. Tear the basil into small pieces. These will go on top of each canapé.

  3.  Open the mozzarella pearls. Slide a pearl on the end of a toothpick. Next, stack a piece of basil on top of a tomato. Slide the toothpick (with a piece of mozzarella already on it) straight down through the basil and tomato. 

  4. Continue this process until all tomatoes are covered with one piece of basil and a mozzarella pearl. 

  5. Arrange the canapés on a platter and serve.
