  DIRECTIONS:   Cherry or Grape tomatoes will work great in this recipe and they are both little sweet gems of tomato deliciousness. The fresh basil adds the perfect complement to the tartness of the tomato. Use a higher quality Olive Oil to ensure a light and pure flavor. You could also pair this with a balsamic glaze to add the perfect complimentary taste. Marky's has several Balsamic Glazes available that would suit this recipe perfectly. Toss tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, olive oil, basil, salt, and pepper together in a bowl until well coated. Skewer one tomato and one piece of mozzarella cheese on each toothpick. You can make these ahead and refrigerate. Cover tightly with cellophane or place into air-proof containers.   @2009
