Manic Monday Recipe~ Tomato, Mozzarella & Basil

I love using this recipe as a light appetizer.  It such a great looking dish that is super easy to make.  I got this recipe from my mother-in-law. 

24 Cherry Tomatoes
Olive Oil
24 Small Squares of Mozzarella
Garlic Salt
24 Pieces of Basil Leaves (I usually just rip 1 basil leave in half and it's the perfect size)
24 Tooth Picks

Wash and cut each cherry tomato in half. 
Start by sliding the end of a cherry tomato onto the tooth pick.  Next add a piece of basil, mozzarella, and the other end of the cherry tomato.  And there you have it!  Just repeat to finish the others and set them on a pretty dish.
Then, drizzle them with some olive oil, making sure to hit each one.   Next, sprinkle garlic salt over each one and your finished. 
Could it get any easier?
