Marinated Mozzarella Cheese and Olives-last minute appetizer

Just find out guests are stopping by? Or need one more appy for the party? Mozzarella Cheese and Olives marinated in Italian dressing and orange zest would be a nice easy treat! It offers tons of options too, mix and match anything you like, assorted green and black olives, sun dried tomatoes, fresh crunchy celery, want to add some pepperoncini? Go ahead, you know your crowd:@) This appy gets livened up with fresh orange zest, chopped parsley and crushed red pepper flakes. Just be sure to use your favorite Italian dressing and enjoy!

I really do love all of the pretty colors:@)

Marinated Mozzarella Cheese and Olives
Mozzarella-either a big ball cut into cubes or fancy Bocconcini
Italian Dressing-I like Good Seasons
Drizzle of flavorful olive oil, approx 1 tsp for each cup of veggies
Olives of your choice
Anything else that sounds good
zest of an orange, approx 1/4 tsp for each cup of veggies
Sprinkling of fresh chopped parsley, enough to add pretty color when mixed
a few shakes of crushed red pepper
  • No real recipe here folks, add cheese and olives, etc. to a big bowl. Pour enough dressing over everything to coat it, add a small splash of olive oil. Sprinkle with zest, parsley and crushed pepper flakes. Mix well, cover and let marinate in the fridge one hour. Serve with fun picks and enjoy.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone-enjoy the holiday weekend!
Eat well, stay safe and play nice:@)
