Ciliegine Con Prosciutto


1/2 medium lemon
1 medium garlic clove
2 tbl snipped fresh chives
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 tsp hot red-pepper flakes
9 ounces fresh mozzarella "cherries" or fresh mozzarrella
15 thin prosciutto slices (6 ounces) If you can find Parma it's
worth the extra money.
1 medium bunch dill


Squeeze lemon juice into a medium bowl. Peel and crush garlic and put it into the bowl along with the chives, olive oil, and red-pepper flakes. Drain and add cheese "cherries" or cut mozzarella into 3/4- inch cubes and add to the mixture. Marinate at room temperature at least 2 hours. (Can cover and refrigerate overnight). Cut prosciutto slices in half lengthwise. Wrap 1 slice of prosciutto around each piece of cheese and 1 small sprig of dill. Secure with a toothpick and serve. Let me know if you want any others. I have many. Or if it is something special you are looking for. I would be happy to help you knock the socks off of your aunt.
