    I think this might be better with fresh mozzarella cheese? After a couple of hours in the marinade, it didn't have much flavor. So I waited overnight to see if it would have taken on more of the was somewhat better. The cubes are certainly pretty with all of the red/green/herbs and oil, they look very festive, yet the flavor is somewhat weak. One reviewer said they use string cheese, maybe this would be better as the consistency of string cheese is loose, possibly allowing the marinade to penetrate the cheese better?

    Always a crowd pleaser! I toss in fresh basil too when in season. Seems like I can never make enough. ?

    Love this recipe. So easy to make. I've taken it to several family cookouts and get rave reviews. I get string cheese, it's easier to cube.

    Five stars for yumminess, ease, and do ahead. These taste wonderful and I stole ebramkamp's idea with using kalamata olives. Pretty to serve too.

    I made these for my husband and mother in law. I used fresh mozzarella and added some chopped kalamata olives because she loves them and I had some in the pantry. They both enjoyed them but she really loved them. She requested the recipe and was delighted it was so easy.

    I made this over the Christmas holidays and everybody loved it. I used bottled sundried tomato bruschetta in place of the sundried tomatoes and I doubled it. It worked perfectly and was much easier than having to chop up the sundried tomatoes. Next time I think I will try it with fresh mozzarella. Great recipe!!

    These were just OK -- perhaps they needed to marinate over night to be more flavorful.

    This is much better if using fresh mozzarella. Otherwise, I would lower the oil and lower the garlic as some people don't like itl. This makes it better for all in my opinion. : )

    Great appetizer for a party without being the same old plain, cut up cubes of cheese, which has gotten a bit boring in my book. This recipe has the contemporary flavors that are welcome at gatherings and easy to assemble!
