  1. Top each cracker with 1 EACH cheese slice and basil leaf.
  2. Add 1 tomato half to each for the lady bug's body, 1 olive piece for the head and 2 green onion strips for the antennae.
  3. Brush with balsamic glaze; sprinkle with sesame seed.


  • Tips:
  • Substitute coarsely cracked black pepper for the sesame seed.
  • Fun Variation: To add some "flight" to each lady bug, cut cherry tomato halves in half and arrange, fanned slightly apart, on crackers.
  • Substitute thin fresh chive strips for the green onion strips.
