This morning a thunderstorm woke me up about an hour before my alarm went off. Isn't that just the perfect way to wake up? You get to listen to the rain, but still get to snuggle in bed for a while. Perfectly comfortable. Happy Independence Day! Let's talk appetizers. It's hot and humid, so let's find a no-cook, cool recipe that everyone will enjoy. Let's incorporate eye-catching colors, and let's step it up with some marinated mozzarella. Let's make THESE:
Marinade for one ball of mozzarella:
zest from half a lemon
zest from half a lime
1 tsp dried cilantro
Extra virgin olive oil to cover (~1/2 cup)
Marinate in the fridge for up to 2 hours.
I love zest from lemons and limes. If I could put it in everything, I probably would.
