Mini Tomato & Mozzarella Bites

A super quick appetizer that is colorful and flavorful and will just take minutes to prepare before your guests arrive.  You only need a few ingredients to throw this together.
1 quart grape tomatoes, halved
12 bocconcini (mini fresh mozzarella cheese balls), cut into 3rds
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
6 thinly sliced fresh basil leaves (roll them up and cut thinly)
Kosher salt and pepper to taste
Skewer 1 tomato half, 1 piece of cheese and another tomato half onto each toothpick.  Place all skewered tomoatoes and cheese into a shallow dish.  In a small bowl whisk together the balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper and drizzle over skewers.  Lastly, sprinkle the tops with basil and salt and pepper to taste.  Serve immediatately or refrigerate up to an hour (I don't like cold tomatoes so I like to serve this immediately after I make it).
