Marinated Mozzarella

DSC01989
Have you ever bought something only to say.. hey, I could make that.  Well, I do that A LOT.  It has become a bit of a hobby I suppose.  The good thing is no matter what it is, the homemade version pretty much always tastes as good if not better.  And knowing exactly what went in it and being able to adjust the flavor to our liking? That makes it way better in my book.  This was a quick experiment and quickly a favorite.  The first attempt was too good to fiddle with.  And the flavor only got better a day or two later.  Serve on sliced tomatoes with balsamic vinegar, in pasta, pasta salads… or with a spoon.  Not that I would know about that…
