This recipe takes cheese and snacking to a whole new level. I have made this numerous times and each time it has had rave reviews. Great for summer parties and events. Did I also mention that it was the bomb at Herb Day!
1 lb mozzarella cheese, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 jar (7oz) roasted red peppers, drained and cut into bite-size pieces
6 fresh thyme sprigs
2 garlic cloves, minced
1-1/4 cups olive oil
2 Tbsps minced fresh rosemary
2 tsps Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
Bread or crackers
1. In a quart jar with a tight-fitting lid, layer a third of the cheese, peppers, thyme and
garlic. Repeat layers twice.
2. In a small bowl, whisk the oil rosemary, Italian seasoning and pepper flakes. Pour into
jar; seal and turn upside down. Refrigerate overnight, turning several times. Serve
with bread or crackers. Yield: 4 cups.
