Prosciutto Wrapped Mozzarella & Basil...

Caprese salad is my all-time favorite. It's simple, it's light, full of flavor... it's amazing.

I have a pretty unique idea for a caprese recipe for a dinner party I'm attending this weekend... so until I bring that recipe idea to life, here is a recipe for prosciutto wrapped mozzarella & basil...

{via the wicked noodle}

Prosciutto-Wrapped Mozzarella & Basil

  • 8 thin slices prosciutto (preferably imported), halved lengthwise
  • 8 large basil leaves, torn in half
  • 8 small fresh mozzarella balls (about 1-inch in diameter), halved
  • 8 ripe grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil


Arrange 8 slices of prosciutto flat on a cutting board and put a piece of basil on one end of each slice. Top each piece of basil with a piece of mozzarella and a tomato half, matching the cut sides to make a ball. Season very lightly with salt and generously with pepper and then roll up the balls in the prosciutto. Secure each with a toothpick and set on a platter. Repeat with the remaining ingredients. Drizzle with the olive oil and serve.
