Marinated Cheese

It's that time of the year when we have so much to do and so little time to do it. I know you'll likely be having people over for a get-together or you'll be taking an edible gift to  someone's home for a party.   This is an easy appetizer to prepare that you can make ahead of time. As well as being tasty, the cheese cubes are colorful and  pretty to look at.

Marinated Cheese Cubes
1 pound of Mozzarella  or Monterey Jack Cheese cubed into bite-sized pieces
1/2 cup Joe and Son's Milanese Gremolata Olive Oil
1/4 cup  Joe and Son's Sicilian Lemon Balsamic Vinegar
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 teaspoon red peppercorns, crushed (may be purchased at Joe and Son's)
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon dried basil flakes
In a tight sealing container, combine all of the above ingredients except the cheese cubes. Cover and shake well.  In a non-reactive container or zip-lock bag, place the cheese cubes and add the marinade.
Make sure the cheese cubes are coated with the marinade.
Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving in order for the flavors to blend.
This will keep, refrigerated, for about 2 days.
