Italian Tomato Cups

by Melissa on September 2, 2008

I had the menu for our Labor Day Cookout all set, and then I saw these Italian Tomato Cups on Nikki’s Blog and I HAD to add them! They are so cute and so simple to make! These were gone so fast, next time I will definitely make more.

Italian Tomato Cups

  • 2 cups of cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 block of fresh mozzarella
  • 4-5 fresh basil leaves, torn into pieces
  • Italian dressing

Cut the tops on the cherry tomatoes and hollow out with a small spoon or melon baller. Shave a little bit of the wobbly tomatoes so they stand upright. Cut the mozzarella into small cubes and put a cube into each tomato. Add a piece of basil and top with a drop of Italian dressing.
