Bocconcini with Mint and Chili

Bocconcini with Mint and Chili

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.

Serves 4

Keep Inspiring!
