Easy Summer Appetizer: Mini Caprese Bites

Mini Caprese YT Thumb

On a warm summer day, cooking in a hot kitchen is something I hope to avoid. I usually crave something light and cool, and these Mini Caprese Bites are just that! With the flavors of a traditional caprese salad in every bite, they make great finger foods for an afternoon snack or party appetizer. I love making them for summer gatherings and since they only require a few ingredients, they’re totally budget-friendly. Make a plate of these with a refreshing drink for the perfect way to enjoy some sunshine!
