Prosciutto Wrapped Caprese Bites

If you’re looking for a really SIMPLE, yet completely BEAUTIFUL appetizer this Summer – HERE YOU GO!

Set out a platter of these Caprese bites, the next time you have a few friends over. You’ll hear nothing but “mmm” “yum” and plenty of compliments on your creativity!

Since there are only a few ingredients used here, I really recommend using the absolute freshest, highest quality ingredients you can get your hands on…it really makes all the difference.

➡️ Rachel’s Tips:

I’ve used burrata cheese in place of the mozzarella for these, and everyone loved that too.

Traditional prosciutto contains no added preservatives and the only ingredients are pork and salt.

Some cheaper prosciutto products do use nitrates as preservatives. If you want to avoid nitrates and preservatives then look for prosciutto which has a “PDO certification” or specifically says that no nitrates or preservatives are added.

Make SURE that you actually love the taste of the olive oil that you’re using, because your Caprese bites will come out tasting very much like the oil that you use. Each olive oil has it’s own distinctive flavor, from very mild and buttery to an obvious peppery kick and everything in between.

Ingredients:

  • 4 oz thinly sliced nitrate-free prosciutto
  • 2 large garden fresh vine ripe tomatoes
  • 8 oz fresh mozzarella
  • a small bunch of fresh basil leaves picked
  • sea salt flakes, to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp aged balsamic vinegar

Instructions:

Using a sharp knife, carefully slice your tomatoes into 1/4-inch thick slices; then repeat the same with your mozzarella cheese.

Next, stack a tomato and a mozzarella slice.

Then wrap a thin slice of prosciutto over the stack.

Repeat with the remaining ingredients and arrange them on a nice platter as shown.

Top with fresh basil leaves, then sprinkle with sea salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper. Immediately before serving, drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

Enjoy!
