Ingredients: ⅓ cup basil, chopped or torn ½ cup extra virgin olive oil 2 teaspoons lemon juice 2 small cloves garlic (or 1 large), grated ¾ teaspoon Maldon salt ¼ - ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes 2 (8-ounce) pearl mozzarella (small ball sized) 1 ½ pounds cherry tomatoes (or quartered plum tomatoes) Prepared balsamic glaze Instructions: MARINATE: Combine the olive oil, lemon juice, grated garlic, salt, red pepper flakes in a bowl and stir until mixed. Add 1 -2 torn basil leaves to the mix along with the mozzarella. Cover and allow to sit at room temperature for at least 1 hour and if possible, cover and refrigerate for 24-36 hours.
