|8 ounces||Fresh Mozzarella cheese; quartered|
|1 carton||Cherry tomatoes; rinsed, stemmed (halved if large)|
|2 tablespoons||Torn fresh basil leaves|

In small skillet combine olive oil, garlic and red pepper flakes; heat gently over very low heat just until garlic sizzles and oil is warm; do not brown; cool at room temperature. Drain the mozzarella well and pat dry; place in a serving bowl. Drizzle with red pepper, garlic and oil. Toss to coat. Marinate in refrigerator 1-2 hours. Add the tomatoes, basil and salt just before serving. Toss lightly to blend. Serves 6.
