Tomato and Cheese Picks

Cheese and Tomatoes

Tomato and Cheese Picks

 

Grape or Cherry Tomatoes

Block cheese of your choice

Toothpicks

Italian Dressing or dressing of your choice

 

 

Wash and dry tomatoes

Slice tomatoes horizontally in half

Slice cheese into approximately 1/4 slices, then into tomato size squares

The easiest way I have found to do these is to lay out the bottoms of the tomatoes, cut side down

Then lay out the cheese

Take a toothpick and push it through the bottom tomato, then pick the cheese

Using your other hand, push the tomato top onto the toothpick

Set aside in a container

Add dressing and let the tomato picks marinade for at least 30 minutes before serving

Enjoy!
