Marinated Ciliegine

So it’s been hot, humid, and sweaty and this is no time to turn on the oven or even the stove. I can’t even think of that nonsense now. In the meantime, I’m all about quick and easy alternatives like these marinated ciliegine (mini fresh mozzarella) with some crusty bread and a cold glass of wine for which I’ve been known to enjoy on the rocks in this weather.

This recipe is simple and easy to pull together. The ingredients are few, so that means they must be of the highest quality and freshness you can get your hands on. So… choose wisely.

Marinated Ciliegine:

3 tablespoons olive oil

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

2 cloves garlic, crushed

fresh oregano, rosemary, and thyme,rough chopped

1/4 teaspoon peppercorns

12 ciliegine

Combine first 5 ingredients and pour over ciliegine, cover and chill overnight or let sit at room temperature for 20 minutes.
