My granddaughter loves these. The red cherry tomatoes are good but the little yellow tomatoes are fantastic, much better than the red ones.

I love a Caprese salad in the summertime, and this recipe is a great twist on that! The super creamy filling is tasty and the balsamic drizzled on top adds a nice zip of flavor. One yummy appetizer! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
