Servings: 6

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red-pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 12 cherry-size fresh mozzarella balls
  • 6 ripe plum tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup flat-leaf parsley

Make It

1. In medium bowl, whisk together olive oil, vinegar, oregano, red-pepper flakes, sugar, black pepper, and salt. Add mozzarella balls and marinate 15 minutes.

2. Cut off stem end of each plum tomato, and scoop out seeds. Trim bottoms so tomatoes stand upright. Place 2 mozzarella balls inside each tomato, and garnish with parsley.
