Spinach and Mozarella Cheese Appetizer

Spinach and Mozarella Cheese Appetizer

Sometimes we get very unusual recipes from recipe exchanges. Anyone ever try something like this one?

Blanch a bunch of spinach (just dunk in boiling water for about 30 seconds). Cut a large ball of fresh mozzarella into thirds or quarters and wrap the pieces all over with the spinach leaves. Grill until the cheese is soft (or you can stick them in a hot oven also).

Serve with a salsa made with chopped prosciutto, capers, parsley, a little balsamic vinegar, some olive oil. You can add roasted peppers, too - delicious.

Lots of appetizer recipes and wonderful stories of early Arizona in Tastes & Treasures cookbook too.
