A novelty twist on the old idea of cheese on sticks, combined with the starter you get on holiday.
Take a plate to a party.
INSALATA ON STICKS
1 ball mozzarella, rinsed and dried.
2 (or more) red, ripe tomatoes
Basil leaves (lots) - Pulling them fresh off a plant is best
Cut each tomato into wedged sections, scoop out the seeds and just leave the flesh. Try to make all uniform in size.
Cut the mozzarella into bite-size chunks.
Put a cocktail stick through the centre of the cheese, then through a basil leaf, ending by sticking it into (but not right through) a piece of the tomato. Repeat until all cheese used up.
Place sticks on a plate.
Serve sprinkled with pepper or drizzled with some olive oil.
