Marinated Mozzarella

Back to blogging after a few weeks of finishing the new cooking school cookbook and launching our new line of spices! The cookbook is now in the hands of the publisher and our spices are available in the school.

Marinated Mozzarella is our Recipe of the Week in the store advertisement. The recipe goes together in minutes and can be made a day or two in advance. This is a delicious way to showcase fresh basil that is perfect right now. Use as a snack or as part of an antipasto platter.

Marinated Mozzarella

1/2 cup finely chopped roasted red peppers
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
1/4 cup finely chopped kalamata olives
2 cloves minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup olive oil
1 pound fresh mozzarella, cut into 1-inch pieces

Combine all ingredients in a bowl, cover, and refrigerate 2-3 days.

Makes 1 pound.
