Be aware that good quality Olive Oils will solidify when chilled, you can combat this by leaving your marinated cheese out at room temperature for at least 30 minutes before digging in.

The recipe is super adaptable, the flavor combinations for your marinade are almost endless. Why not try;

  • Rosemary, sage, and garlic
  • Oregano, basil, and lemon
  • Garlic and chili

We’ve made a few changes in calculating the nutritional information as a fair bit of the oil will be left in the jar once the cheese is demolished. You can use the remaining flavorsome oil in your favorite salad dressing or use to saute your next steak.

This Keto Marinated Mozzarella recipe makes 10 serves. The serving size will depend on what size bocconcini or mozzarella pearls you use.

The cheese can be stored in the fridge for up to 2 weeks or when the cheese reaches the use-by date – just ensure it is all submerged in the oil.
