Today I announce that I have fallen off the mozzarella wagon. You may have noticed that it has been a little while since I have shared a recipe that showcases mozzarella. The truth is I have been trying not to eat so much. I have been trying not to let the creaminess that is mozzarella take over me. I have been trying not to crave it. But in all honesty, when it comes to mozzarella, I am weak. And this week as I walked past the cheese counter at the grocery store and saw the fresh bite size mozzarella balls smiling at me like Mickey Mouse smiles at kids at Disneyland, I caved. I bought two tubs and I came home and made this marinated mozzarella that allows the flavor of the mozzarella shine.
This recipe is easy. Heck I don’t even know how I feel about calling it a recipe. It is that easy. Despite the fact that it is so simple, I still wanted to share it. However, it does take a bit of planning because the mozzarella needs to marinate in the olive oil herb mixture for at least 4 hours so that it can soak up all of the wonderful flavors of the olive oil, oregano, basil and crushed red pepper. If you want it even more flavorful, let it sit a couple hours more. You’ll be glad you did.
