A great way to serve the green, white and red colours of Italy - tomato, bocconcini and basil. You can find the bite-sized bocconcini at most supermarkets. If you can only get the large ones, cut them in half.


Serves: 10 

  • 20 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 20 fresh basil leaves
  • 20 small balls bocconcini (or 10 larger balls)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) balsamic vinegar
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 20 toothpicks

Preparation:20min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. Using a toothpick, spear a half of a tomato, a piece of basil, a bocconcini ball and another half of a tomato. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Place on a serving dish and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Mix the vinegar and oil together in a small bowl to serve as a dipping sauce.

Very attractive dish but next time I'll use feta cheese as I found the bocconcini rather tasteless. Terrific idea for a party though. Thanks for posting. - 12 May 2011
