Perfect Summer Appetizer: Tomato Olive Mozzarella Bites

Does anyone remember the movie MERMAIDS with Cher?  I LOVED that movie when I was younger.  Cher was the coolest, quirkiest, and prettiest mom and fed her girls all sorts of fingers foods for meals.  And THAT is what inspired me to make this appetizer!  (If you haven't seen the movie, please do).

I made this for the first time and brought it to a neighborhood backyard bbq and it was a hit!  This is a simple, yet delicious, and totally refreshing appetizer on a warm summer night, when you are chatting and waiting for the burgers and chicken to cook.  

1 pint of Cherry Tomatoes, halved
1 pint of Fresh Mozzarella balls, halved
1 jar of Green Olives stuffed with Garlic, halved
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper Mill

To Assemble:   
Use the Tomatoes and Olives as the 'ends' with the Mozz in the middle of the toothpick.  When plate is full, drizzle with the olive oil and crack the salt and pepper on top.  

DONE.  It is just that easy!   And you didn't even have to turn on the oven :)
