Caprese Canapé Recipe

Have I got a tasty but healthy game day treat for you all today! And did I mention it’s a snap to put together? It’s a caprese canapé recipe! It’s the perfect snack for game day or any other time.

Caprese is traditionally a simple Italian salad from the Campania region of Italy. It is composed of tomato, mozzarella, basil and olive oil. It’s traditionally serve anti-pasta style before a meal and on a larger platter-type dish. It’s simple and incredibly delicious. I took this concept and translated it into a canapé.
