Cherry Tomatoes Stuffed With Mozzarella & Basil

Cherry Tomatoes Stuffed with Mozzarella & Basil RecipeThese cute little appetizers are just what you need for unexpected guests. Serve these up with a pitcher of iced tea and you'll be a very gracious host. They're easy to make and with it being late summer, you should always have these ingredients on hand. 

1/2 pound fresh mozzarella, cut into tiny dice (to yield about 1-1/4 cup)
3 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
1/3 cup coarsely chopped fresh basil leaves
1/2 tsp. freshly grated lemon zest (from about a quarter of a lemon)
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 pint (about 18) cherry tomatoes, rinsed

  1. These were delicious. The tomatoes that came with the CSA were a bit too small to stuff, so we just halved them and mixed it all together as a dip. Delicious!
