Basil, Parmesan Cheese and Tomato Appetizer

Summer brings the best flavors. Flavors that don't need to be sauteed, simmered or deep fried, just served fresh.

A stunning, farm-grown tomato stuffed with fresh basil and touch of Parmesan cheese topped off with a high quality olive oil and balsamic vinegar. It looks stunning and it satisfies the taste buds like nothing else.

It's the Fat and Happy version of a Caprese Salad - perfect for appetizers, side dishes or a snack with a glass of wine.

Basil, Parmesan Cheese and Tomato Appetizer with Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar

For the smaller, cherry-size tomatoes- cut a little small slit in the shape of an 'X' in the top of the tomato, place a small basil leaf and a small hunk of Parmesan cheese in the slits. Add a few drop of olive oil and balsamic vinegar on top.

For a slightly larger tomato, add two angled slices on the top of the tomato. Stuff each slice with a basil leaf and a little hunk or slice of Parmesan cheese. Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
