Homemade is Better—Caprese Sald

I am under the weather again.  At the time my writing, three of us in the house tested positive for COVID.  So, this week is going to be a short article, for an easy recipe, one you might even be able to make while your sick.

It’s Caprese Salad.  It’s delicious, colourful, and simple to make as an appetizer.  It is theorized that this salad was created after WWI as an ohmage to Italy.  It is, after all, the colours of the Italian flag.  Green, white, and red.

I chose to use bite sized ingredients for this recipe and used toothpicks to put it all together.  Drizzle some balsamic dressing on it to add some extra flavour.

Since my head is pounding right now, here is my recipe.

Caprese Salad


1 package of cherry tomatoes

1 package of mini bocconcini cheese

1 package of basil

12 toothpicks

  • Add one of each ingredient to a toothpick.
