Place the cheese in your desired container, we use a mason jar.
Pour the olive oil into the container just enough to marinate the mozzarella.
Chop up your fresh herbs and garlic and place into the container.
Add in crushed red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper.
Place a lid on the container and give a good shake to mix the fresh herbs and spices all around the mozzarella cheese.
Allow mozzarella to marinate in the fridge for a few hours before serving. If in a rush, we recommend at least 30 minutes for flavors to get into the mozzarella.
Nutrition info includes ALL of the olive oil, which will not be consumed.
If you don't have fresh herbs you can use dried, but always use less dried than you would fresh.
Don't want heat? It actually doesn't add much heat, you can take them off. the small amount we use is mostly for color. Instead of using crushed red pepper flakes you can use some chopped up red pepper or even tomato for added color.
Not a fan of fresh mozzarella? No worries, just use the mozzarella block and make cute cheese cubes with it.
Did your oil become solid in the refrigerator? Just let it sit at room temperature for a few minutes, even warm it up with your hands. It melts back to a liquid pretty quickly.
