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