It's Getting MOT in Here

Doesn’t everything just taste better when it’s served on a stick? My new favorite app crush is one on a stick. I don’t know what these are called, maybe caprese salad on a stick, but let me name them a MOT on a stick – Mozzarella, Olives and Tomatoes.

Ingredients• Mozzarella balls (or mozzarella that you can cut into squares, but the balls work better)
• Grape tomatoes
• Black olives

Directions• Put all three balls (cheese, tomatoes, olives) on a tooth pick

For the final step, there are a few ways you can add seasoning to the sticks. You can add some Italian salad dressing (avoid zesty) or a little olive oil and basil. Above, readers Dana and I used an awesome Italian dressing (Red Bull Inn - not related to the energy drink, but a Pittsburgh favorite) and put the dipper on the side!
