I have to say, appetizers are one of my favorite things to make. I love making cute, bite sized food! Strange for someone who hardly hosts parties. One day! For now, I'll keep sharing my creations with you so you can make them for yourself, family and friends. :)
The amount for what you will need will vary, depending on how many you are serving. So you might need a little more than what is in the ingredient list.
For the Vegan option: Replace the fresh mozzarella balls for a vegan cheese. I highly recommend Miyoko's cashew fresh mozz. You could also try my cashew cheese but it would be more like a sauce. Just something to consider! :)
Caprese Cucumber Bites with Pesto
Recipe by: Krysten Jorgensen, The Daily Kale
Makes 15-20 bites
Is my title...a little on the corny side? Haha. I don't care, you!!
What I mean by my title is this pesto is suuuuuuuper fast & easy to make. And of course, as always, healthy.
So fast actually- that I didn't even get to take a good picture. Haha. Oh well. Look how pretty & green it is. SO I've always made pesto the same way. And at first, after all my research earlier I told you about in a previous post on all the greens I need to avoid from now on. I thought :( How is this going to be good if no spinach & kale are allowed in on the pesto party? Oh well. It turned out great. Super creamy & delicious.
