Tomato Peach Bites with Garlic, Jalapeno Oil

Last week has been beyond busy out here. At the office and at home. Does it happen to you that when you are needed at home the most, the office needs you the most too. Or is it just me?

Fall has arrived so we need some work done in the garden to prepare for the never ending winter. I almost forgot what cold weather is like and yesterday it hit us from nowhere. Luckily I finished getting the closets organized with Winter clothes last week-end. Am I on time or what? With so much going on, I didn’t spend a lot of time in the kitchen but I have these no cook but nevertheless super delicious recipe for Tomato Peach bites. Its really no recipe at all.



Feeds about 6 as appetizer for regular dinner or a cocktail party. If you have other appetizers for dinner, reduce the quantity.

Cherry or Grape Tomatoes 1 per skewer about 30

Queso Fresco Cheese 1 8oz package cubed in small pieces

Peach about 1 1/2 peeled and cubed

Basil leaves about 15 that you cut in half and use half per skewer

Extra Virgin Olive oil infused with garlic

Jalapeno 1 (optional)

Salt as per taste



Cut the Jalapeno in half, remove seeds and immerse in Oil for at least 2 hours. On multi-colored toothpicks put a 1 cube of cheese, 1 Grape Tomato, 1/2 Basil leaf (fold if needed) and finally a cube of Peach. Once all the skewers are assembled, drizzle the Olive Oil. Sprinkle Salt and serve.
