Fast Food Friday – Caprese Salad On A Stick

7-24-15 040

Talk about your “fast food” with no cooking skills required!  If you are throwing a party on the fly, this is a great, healthy dish that is ready to go in minutes which doesn’t even require the use of an oven.  This is one of our all-time party favorites.  And what’s better than a “salad” that’s nearly half cheese, eaten in one bite from a stick!?!  So when Amelia recently picked up these gorgeous cherry tomatoes from Mana’s Ranch in Esparto, I knew exactly what I had to make!
