A simple appetizer is my go-to choice when we visit friends. Rob is easy to please, so it works as a treat for us also when we want a quick bite!
Tomato and Fresh Mozzarella with Pesto
Slice a ripe tomato – cut it in half if it’s a big one – then slice the halves. Slice your fresh mozzarella. I halve the mozzarella ball also, to make the tomato and mozzarella slices fit together easily. Arrange the slices on a tray or plate.
Yeah. Easy. (You didn’t even need instructions, did you?)
Add in a good bread – we like a baguette loaf – and a jar of pesto. (We like the one from Aldi’s.)
And you’re done!
A Simple Appetizer to Please Everyone
What would make this simple appetizer better?
Some fresh basil… (but I didn’t have any. Oh well.)
If I’m not sure whether people will like the olive oil or balsamic vinegar, then I just serve it on the side along with the pesto as another “side”.
Providing these options makes this appetizer useful because if someone doesn’t like pesto – they don’t need to have any… or if all someone wants are the baguette slices, they can dip them into the olive oil… See? It’s simple. It’s easy.
Oh, just have fun with a simple appetizer that anyone will enjoy.
If you’re interested in something special, you could make your own Pesto… Here’s an easy recipe from Marzia at Little Spice Jar for Basil Pesto!
Marzia says about her husband:
I love it when husbands and wives work together on good stuff!
