Mozzarella and Tomato Appetizer Tray

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2011
Amazingly good! The herbed-oil mixture is what sets this apart from every other tomato/mozz appy out there. I brought this to a BBQ with my in-laws yesterday and I've already been told not to show up for Thanksgiving without it. LOL I layered all the ingredients on thin slices of bread. I worried that the bread would get stale or soggy but it actually was great. It not only gave you something to pick it by to eat it, but it soaked up the tasty oil and vinegar and was like you'd dipped bread in infused oil. I doubled the oil recipe because I was making two trays. I used fresh parsley and basil (I agree with everyone else that fresh herbs are a MUST for this) and followed another reviewers suggestion of subbing a little salt for the capers. With 4 large cloves of garlic, it was a little garlic-y for my liking but everyone else at the party said they loved the strong garlic taste. I would probably use 3 cloves next time. I also omitted the red pepper (just forgot about it honestly but we never missed it) and drizzled balsalmic vinegar over everything after drizzing the oil. Very impressive presentation and excellent results. A real keeper - thanks MOLSON7!!!
