I sure raised some good cooks! The other night my youngest son, Adam, had us over and made a new appetizer…..OBOY! it was good. Basically it’s the ingredients that are in a caprese salad: mozzarella, tomatoes, and proscuitto.
ADAM’S CAPRESE APPETIZER (Mozzarella Caprese di Adamoli)
Olive oil and vinegar (or your favorite Italian dressing)
Basil for garnish
Wrap the prosciutto around the sliced cheese and freeze a few hours. Bring a cast iron skillet to very hot and hit the skillet with the meat/cheese and fry very quickly a couple of minutes on each side (or just till the meat browns slightly). You don’t want to melt the cheese, but it should be warm. Arrange on a platter, top with tomatoes, basil, and drizzle vinaigrette over it. Voila! Beautiful, delicious, and impressive!
this is great to take to a party. I would probably cut the cheese/ meat in half for a smaller serving….but that’s YOUR business!!
