Caprese Appetizer

From Natalie:

With beautiful garden tomatoes now available at all the local farms in the area, I have been adding them to everything.  This is a simple recipe, but one of my favorites! Add to a buffet table or serve as a first course of a nice dinner.


  • Garden fresh tomatoes, I used cherry tomatoes
  • Cucumber
  • Buffalo mozzarella
  • Fresh Basil (I grow it in a pot on my deck)
  • Jane’s Crazy Salt
  • Balsamic Glaze

Slice the cucumbers about 1/8 inch thick.  Slice mozzarella about the same thickness and put on top of the cucumber.  Slice tomatoes also and put on top of the cheese.  Add a leaf of basil (or a piece of a leaf if they are large), in between the cheese and tomato.  Sprinkle with Crazy Salt.  Drizzle Balsamic Glaze over the top.  If you don’t have the glaze, a drizzle of olive oil would be a nice alternative. This is easy, fresh and delicious and makes a beautiful presentation to any table.  Enjoy!
