I have to say, I’ve marinaded a lot of things – but, cheese? Not so much.
This lovely idea was brought to us by my neighbor who writes Shredded Sprout. I followed her recipe to a tee aside from one thing – fresh buffalo mozzarella. It was Memorial Day. I had run to Fresh Market, Heinens (closed), a local Italian restaurant (closed) and finally in a desperate attempt, Jewel. At that point I gave up and bought the freshest (regular) mozzarella I could find.
And you know what?
It worked. Really really well.
So if you are balancing baseball schedules and playdates and nap schedules and just don’t have the time to run around to find a (sometimes) more difficult ingredient it’s ok. I promise. My version was gobbled up! I had to cut myself off after 4 (large) pieces to save room for dinner.
It’s also good to know that this one will only get better as this season goes on. Freshly picked summer tomatoes and if you get lucky that friendly cheese guy at the market might just carry exactly what we’re looking for.
Want the recipe? Of course you do. Head on over here. She walks you through it well.

Oh Hey! I am obsessed with Trader Joe’s marinated mozzarella balls and I have no doubt uber fresh slices would be an even better hit!
Those Trader Joe’s marinated mozz balls are ADDICTIVE! I didn’t think I could love marinated cheese anymore….until I made this. I’m already craving it again!
I also love marinating fresh mozzarella! I tend to use bocconcini when I’m entertaining since they are the perfect size. They are delicious standing alone, but when you marinate them? Incredible! Going to try this version at my next get together.
I love me a good caprese salad, so this sounds superb. Can’t wait to try it out!
I love any kind of cheese! I love that at Whole Foods you can ask for as many samples as you want. 😀
Thanks for the kudos Courtney! This really is delicious and am looking forward to sharing many more recipes with each other this summer!
