1 carton (about 30) cherry tomatoes
1 bunch basil
1 container of Bocconcini (bite-sized) fresh mozzarella, sliced
Blood Orange or regular Balsamic Vinegar
Good quality extra virgin olive oil
Fleur de Sel or other sea salt
Assorted cold cuts (e.g., Serrano ham or prosciutto, Salchicon or Salami)
1. Cut each tomato in half, then layer one half with a slice of mozzarella and a piece of basil leaf, top with the other tomato half and secure the whole package by skewering with a toothpick.
2. Arrange all the stuffed tomatoes around the perimeter of a serving plate. Add an assortment of sliced cold cuts in the center of the plate.
3. Drizzle some good quality extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar over the tomatoes, then season with a bit of Fleur de Sel or other sea salt.
