Quit turning to cocktail weiners every time you go to throw a party and make these elegant, and better for you, prosciutto-wrapped peppers, instead.
- 3 Tablespoons olive oil
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 4 black olives
- 4 roasted red peppers
- 8 Ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into 4 pieces
- 4 basil leaves
- 4 Ounces sliced prosciutto
- 1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
Whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, and salt and pepper, to taste. Add the peppers and marinate for 1 hour. Fill each pepper with a piece of mozzarella. Wrap a slice of prosciutto around each pepper. Top each with a basil leaf and olive, held together with a toothpick.
