Nothing beats a backyard barbecue on a sunny weekend day. When you're surrounded by friends and family sharing stories and enjoying fresh food--there's nothing better. And when you get asked to bring a dish to a barbeque, you want it to be memorable and bring joy to the occasion. This recipe will work wonders if your goal is to impress with simplicity without compromising in flavour.

To make sure the kebab sticks stand out in flavour, choose cocktail varieties of tomatoes that deliver sweet bursts of freshness. Look for mini mozzarella sometimes called bocconcini in the supermarket as they look quite appealing on a stick.

This dish is quick and fun to prepare and can be made quickly before you head out the door. It's also a really fun recipe to get kids excited about the flavour of tomatoes.
