- Pour Mutti® Finely Chopped Tomatoes into a fine strainer and allow to drain for 6 hours or overnight to remove as much moisture as possible.
- Chop capers, olives, basil and parsley and combine with the drained tomatoes. Stir in the olive oil and season to taste with salt and pepper.
- Using a round form or cookie cutter about 3-inches wide, cut four disks out of the sliced cheese. Next, using the form, top the cheese with ½-cup of the tomato mixture, pressing down to compact it into shape. Carefully remove the form and top with feta cheese. Garnish, if desired, with a drizzle of olive oil, balsamic reduction and a sprinkle of capers. Serve with parmesan crisps or toasted bread slices.
Simmer ½ cup good quality balsamic vinegar over low heat in a small saucepan for about 15 minutes or until it has reduced to syrup consistency.
