    Easy and looks interesting on the table. Not going to take the award for most fabulous appetizer at the party but beats a bag of chips!

    Great, quick, "small bite". Make sure to use corse salt and freshly ground pepper. I also use walnut oil sometime to change the flavor. Also great to use these left over marinated bocconcini on the mini meatball pizza's.
