You can buy bocconcini, bite-size balls of mozzarella, in most good cheese shops, larger supermarkets, and delis. Alternatively, buy a block of regular mozzarella and cut it into bite-size pieces.
- 9 oz. bocconcini mozzarella
- 1/4 tsp. dried chili flakes
- 1 tsp. chopped fresh mint
- 1 1/2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
Drain the bocconcini and place in a bowl. Sprinkle with the chili and mint and drizzle with the oil. Toss to coat each ball well.
Cover and leave to marinate in the refrigerator for a least 1 hour. Allow the cheese to return to room temperature before serving.
