The eyes have it with these ghoulish appetizers, a simple idea with carrot "pupils" inside herb-flecked mini-mozzarella balls.

Ingredients

2
containers (8 oz each) fresh ciliegini mozzarella cheese (cherry-size balls) (about 2 cups)
12
ready-to-eat baby-cut carrots, cut into 1/2-inch slices
1/4
cup light olive oil
2
tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves
1
tablespoon white vinegar
1/4
teaspoon salt
1
clove garlic, finely chopped

Steps

  • 1 Make small cut in center of each cheese ball; insert carrot slice.
  • 2 In medium bowl, mix remaining ingredients. Stir in stuffed cheese balls.
  • 3 Cover and refrigerate 1 to 2 hours to blend flavors. Stir after 30 minutes.

Expert Tips

The marinade ingredients can be mixed in a 1-quart resealable food-storage plastic bag instead of a bowl. Add stuffed cheese balls to the marinade mixture.

For extra convenience, look for jars of chopped garlic in the produce department.
