Cheesy Zucchini Bites

Garden-fresh zucchini and cherry tomatoes are tastefully combined in these colorful appetizers. Writes Amy Frombach of Bradford, Pennsylvania, "Folks tend to hang around the appetizer tray whenever I serve these pretty party bites."

    I made them using mozzerella chesse since my family doesnt care for blue or feta which I love. They loved them but Im gonna try some with the original recipe for me next time.

    I made these with feta cheese and they were delicious. My zucchini were a little larger than the recipe calls for but still worked great. My husband said that this recipe is a keeper. They are good cold, too. We tried a couple that way to see how they would be to take to a picnic.

    I like blue cheese but my husband does not so I will probably use feta cheese instead.
