  • Summary

    Bocconcini are just bite-size morsels of fresh mozzarella. Look for them at specialty food stores and Italian markets, as well as many supermarkets; they're usually packaged in water or whey for freshness. Match these marinated bocconcini with sliced salami, grape tomatoes, pitted olives, or cantaloupe balls.

    Ingredients

    • 1/2 pint bocconcini (about 20 balls)
    • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
    • Zest of 1 lemon, peeled into long strips
    • 4 small sprigs fresh rosemary
    • 1/4 teaspoon red-pepper flakes
    • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
