  • 6 ounces Bocconcini (small fresh mozzarella balls), drained
  • 1 paper thin slice proscuitto ham, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup pitted kalamata olives, drained

How to Make It

  1. PLACE grape tomatoes, bocconcini, proscuitto, olives and capers in large bowl.

  3. REFRIGERATE, covered, several hours or overnight to allow flavors to develop, stirring occasionally. Season with additional black pepper if desired.

  4. TRANSFER tomato mixture to a serving bowl using a slotted spoon. Garnish with fresh oregano sprigs, if desired. Serve.
