Olives + Mozz

1 cup Castelvetrano olives
3/4 lb mozzarella balls
2 tablespoons juice from the olives
1/2 tablespoon crushed red pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley

Toss all ingredients together. Serve at room temperature.

My thoughts:

This is a super easy yet tasty appetizer for NYE or whenever. Castelvetrano olives (under the name of Verdi) are available at Costco now and are seriously addictive. They might have big pits but the flavor of the olives make up for it. They are buttery and the perfect accompaniment for creamy mozzarella.

  1. You've combine two of my favorite things here – olives and mozzarella. This looks wonderful! It's been saved to make in 2012. Hope you're having a marvelous New Years Day!
