Marinated Mozzarella & Parmesan
With its mild creamy flavour mozzerella is an ideal ingredient to soak up flavourings. Good quality olive oil, capers, lemon and basil are all that is needed to make a delicious starter or plate for a buffet or pot luck.
- 1 ball Mozzarella
- 1 tbs good olive oil
- 1 clove garlic - finely chopped
- Juice & zest of half a lemon
- 2 oz Parmesan
- 1 tsp capers
- few basil leaves
Simply slice the mozzarella into 1/4" / 0.5cm slices and arrange in a shallow bowl.
Pour over the olive oil, lemon zest & juice and the finely chopped garlic.
Using a peeler cut the Parmesan into slivers and sprinkle with the capers over the mozzarella.
Allow to stand for a few hours. Sprinkle with torn basil leaves and serve with crusty bread.
