Antipasti in a jar

Such a simple recipe, yet it looks inviting and easy to prepare. It keeps in the refrigerator for unexpected company; to take to a dinner party as a hostess gift; or to set out for appetizers at your next dinner party.

  • Mozzarella balls
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • kosher salt
  • dried oregano
  • crushed red pepper flakes
  • grape tomatoes, halved
  • chopped fresh basil
  • pitted green olives

Toss the mozzarella balls with the olive oil ( I used avocado oil to lighten up), salt, oregano and red pepper flakes.  In a separate bowl toss tomatoes with salt and basil.  Allow to sit for 5 minutes to meld flavors together.

I also topped each with a slice of dehydrated roma tomato and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.  These will sit in the refrigerator until ready to serve; up to 3 days.  Delicious and easy!

Love and Light,
