Marinated Mozzarella

Aromatic herbs and a pinch of spicy red-pepper flakes jazz-up the subtle, creamy flavor of fresh mozzarella.  Our marinated mozzarella is perfect for entertaining or picnics. You can even whip up this easy appetizer ahead of time.


8 oz Fresh Mozzarella (slices or Bocconicini)
1/3 cup Sutter Buttes Fresh Harvest Garlic Olive Oil
2 tsp Sutter Buttes Tuscan Dipping Herbs
Red Chili Flakes to taste – optional


Drain mozzarella and place in a bowl or container.  Add oil, herbs and chili flakes, if using.  Toss to coat and marinate, covered, in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.  Can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
