I love this recipe. Made with what I call "free flavor" (the marinade that comes with oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes--hey, you already bought it, why not use it?), it is a simple way to step up store-bought bocconcini, which are a staple in my house.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound bocconcini (small mozzarella balls)
  • 1/4 cup oil from jarred sun-dried tomatoes 
  • Pinch of sea salt 
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley 

Directions

Place the bocconcini in a shallow plate. Drizzle the oil over them, add the salt and sprinkle the parsley over the top. Toss lightly, and enjoy. (Try one wrapped in a small slice of prosciutto.)

Cook's Note

Try other flavor combinations from the pantry: Dilute a little homemade or store-bought pesto with some good olive oil, and use it as a dressing for the bocconcini. Top with sea salt, and you're in business.
