finger food mozzarella-tomato-picksAfter a long period of unstable weather and a colder breeze than usual, the summer has finally arrived in Brooklyn!  So naturally my mind turns to fun summer parties, white wine sangria, and picnics in the park with our amazing friends.

This little cute mozzarella and cherry tomato stick dish is perfect for those occasions and easy to put together – a good and tasty little hors d’oeuvre to serve. It is as easy to make as it looks. For homemade pesto check out the recipe for arugula pesto and sage and walnut pesto
