An easy, bite-size version of a Caprese salad.  This appetizer can be put together in a pinch but your guests will never know it.  The vibrant colors make for a beautiful arrangement.  If available, fresh tomatoes and basil leaves from the garden make this dish even better.  We often use this as a side dish during the summer months when the tomatoes are abundant.”
