Marinated Baby Mozzarella Recipe


Most supermarket delis sell these little gems at a premium price. Save money by making your own marinated baby mozzarella balls at home. Plan ahead for marination time.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes


  • 1 Tablespoon fresh parsley, coarsely minced
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh basil, coarsely minced
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh oregano, coarsely minced
  • 1/2 cup good quality olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound fresh baby mozzarella cheese balls


Place parsley, basil, oregano, olive oil, lemon juice, and salt in a zip-top bag large enough to hold the mozzarella. Squish to combine. Add the mozzarella, seal, and toss bag to coat the cheese. Open the bag, squeeze out all the air, and re-seal.

Let marinated mozzarella balls sit at room temperature for 4 hours before serving.

Yield: About 6 servings
