I Thought I Saw A Lady Bird / Bug Caprese Salad !
Lady Bug Caprese Salad.
cherry tomatoes, black olives, basil leaves, and mozzarella
and the dots.... are spots of thick balsamic vinegar!
There is really no recipe... this is an assembly. Sort of what you see is what you need. Mozzarella sliced, basil leaf (you can split the stem to look like antennae), cherry tomato sliced halfway up and spread a bit to make the wings, lay an olive to make the head. The olive can be put on two ways... either you slice a tad off the cherry tomato's "neck" and then scoop out a bit... then lay the olive into the slight cavity, or... you can slice the olive in half (lengthwise) and just sort of suction-cup it to the tomato.... you might even poke a hole in the olive and 'shove' the basil stem through, then split it to make antennae. Done.
Original idea here
Don't you just love them!
All the best Jan
