With just a few twists on this classic recipe, your family will each get their own plate to devour as an appetizer or a snack. My teenage daughter was hungrily eyeing these and begging to have one before I was done making them. I made her hold off, but I might have packed some extra tomatoes in her lunch for the next day.

We love Red Sun Farms tomatoes because they are always fresh and bursting with that sweet flavor. They work equally well for a quick snack by themselves or paired with the ingredients here for a caprese salad skewer recipe.

Directions:
1. Slice off the top of the tomato at a sharp angle. Repeat with second tomato, flip it, and hold it together with a skewer to make the heart. Alternately, slice the top off of a tomato, cut the large part in half, flip and put it on the skewer to make a heart. Alternate ingredients on the skewer with mozzarella and basil.
