Scrumptious Stackers

I am a HUGE fan of this appetizer in restaurants. And, after tonight, I have no idea why I’ve never thought to do it on my own! This was EASY and YUMMMMMMYYYY! I think I could have eaten the whole plate. But, I kindly saved some for our guests. And, you can bet that we’ll be making this again and again!Dec. 16 051 Caprese Stackers

2 vine ripened tomatoes (washed + patted dry)
15 to 20 leaves of basil (washed + patted dry)
1 lb fresh mozzarella
balsamic vinegar for drizzling
olive oil for drizzling

Slice tomatoes and mozzarella into 1/4 inch slices. Stack tomato, mozzarella and basil on each plate in an alternating pattern.  Be sure to finish off with a small basil leaf on top.  Drizzle each stack first with balsamic vinegar then with olive oil. Pepper each stack and salt to taste.  Dec. 16 049
