Caprese Tomato Shooters

Although these appetizers may look a little labor-intensive, they really
take no time at all and make a wonderful presentation. I found a sharp
paring knife worked best to scoop out the tomato pulp. First I tried a
melon baller, but it tore up the edges of the tomato.  Here's the easy

Scoop out and discard pulp and stem of the cherry tomatoes. Invert tomatoes
onto paper towels to drain. 
Meanwhile, slice mozzarella cheese stick into rounds, about 1/2 inch thick, and
wash fresh basil leaves. Pat dry. Invert tomatoes, sprinkle with sea salt, and
drizzle with EVOO. Wrap a leaf of basil around the cheese round, then insert
into a tomato.  
Enjoy! My dinner guests did!
