Celebrating Valentine's day with things I love - cute appetizers! Tomato mozzarella (or boccocini) salads are so fresh, delicious, and easy to make. To stay on theme for Valentines day, just pull out a small cookie cutter and voila!

I suggest using multi-color heirloom tomatoes for this, but a regular tomato will work too. All you need after that is mozzarella, fresh basil, pesto, flaky salt, and some high quality balsamic glaze. Use different sized cookie cutters to have different sized cheese bites!

No need to wait another year for Valentine's day, add these to your next charcuterie night, date night, or girls night!
