Tangy Mozzarella Bites Recipe

Tangy Mozzarella Bites Recipe

I adapted this recipe from one I found years ago, substituting ingredients most people have on hand. I like to serve it with crackers or small bread slices.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 5 min. + chilling YIELD:24 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 16 ounces cubed part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the oil, vinegar, garlic, basil and pepper. Add cheese; toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Yield: about 3 cups.
