Makes about 4 cups

Add even more amazing flavor to mozzarella by marinating these bites in an olive oil and herb mixture. These bites are popping with flavor, are very portable, and make a great appetizer. 

Ingredients

  • 3 (8-oz.) blocks mozzarella cheese
  • 1 (8.5-oz.) jar sun-dried tomatoes, drained and halved
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • Garnish: flat-leaf parsley sprigs or fresh rosemary stems

How to Make It

  1. Cut blocks of cheese into 1-inch cubes. Arrange cheese cubes and tomato halves in an 8-inch square baking dish.

  2. Whisk together 1/2 cup olive oil, chopped parsley, and next 6 ingredients; pour evenly over cheese cubes. Cover and chill at least 8 hours or up to 24 hours. Transfer mixture to a serving plate. Garnish with fresh flat-leaf parsley sprigs, or spear tomato halves and cheese cubes with short rosemary stems, if desired. Drizzle with marinade, if desired.
