  1. For the dip, beat the gorgonzola with a fork until smooth and creamy. Add the crème fraîche and mix well to combine. Stir through the basil and sundried tomatoes.
  2. Preheat the grill to medium. Thread the baby plum tomatoes onto 6 cocktail sticks, then add a basil leaf and a mozzarella pearl to each one.
