  • 1 ½ cups cherry bocconcini cheese (halved)
  • ¼ cups fresh basil leaves
  • 2 tbsp of extra Virgin olive oil

  • Drizzle olive oil and sprinkle dried oregano powder over the mixture. Stir.

Lactose adaptable: Bocconcini cheese contains very little lactose and usually won’t upset your stomach if you’re lactose intolerant. However, you can substitute the bocconcini out for some lactose free cheese, just to be safe!
