Special Feature: Products Sally Recommends
Grape Leaf Packages Filled with Mozzarella Cheese and Serrano Ham
Makes 4 servings
2 large balls of fresh mozzarella, about 1 pound
2 paper-thin slices Serrano ham or prosciutto
4 large grape leaves
olive oil for sautéing
½ cup garlic-flavored olive oil
Cut each ball of cheese into 4 think slices for a total of 8 slices. Lay a slice of ham or prosciutto on 4 of the cheese slices, and then top each with the remaining cheese slices.
Wrap each “sandwich” with a grape leaf.
Heat a sauté pan to high heat and add a few tablespoons of olive oil. Sear the wrapped cheeses for about 30 seconds per side, until the grape leaf is a little crisp.
Transfer to a platter and drizzle with garlic oil.
Serve at room temperature.
