Five Ingredient Fix

Bonus Recipe: Mozzarella Bites

With a perfect balance of acidity, heat and creaminess, this is one of my party staples. I love to serve these alongside almonds, olives and cured meats.


8 oz fresh cherry-size mozzarella balls (bocconcini), drained

1 tsp red-pepper flakes

Zest of 1 lemon

3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

1 tbsp finely chopped fresh basil

Sea salt and cracked black pepper, to taste


Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl and serve immediately or chill in refrigerator until ready to eat. Serves 6.

What to toss in if you have it: This is one of those perfect five-ingredient recipes. Leave as is and enjoy!
