Step outside the box with this fresh holiday appetizer by @lindseyeatsla! Ancient Harvest Heat-and-Eat Polenta is cooked in rounds and plated up with prosciutto, burrata and a homemade green mojo verde that is begging to be served at your next holiday party.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 5 to 7 slices of prosciutto
  • About ½ cup burrata (mozzarella works too), torn in segments
  • 3-4 roma tomatoes
  • 1 package of Ancient Harvest Heat-and-Eat Polenta (sliced into rounds)

For the Mojo Verde

  • 1 cup parsley
  • 1 cup cilantro
  • 5-6 serrano chilies
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 juice of lime
  • 1 tsp vinegar
  • ¼ cup oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Make your mojo verde by placing parsley, cilantro, Serrano chiles, garlic, lime juice, vinegar and oil in a food processor. Pulse and mix until a chunky sauce forms.
  2. Slice your polenta in rounds and sear on a skillet with a drizzle of olive oil until it becomes a bright yellow/orange color, about 4-5 minutes on each side. While that’s searing, slice your tomatoes.
  3. To assemble, place your polenta cakes with a piece of sliced tomato, a segment of burrata and 1-2 pieces of prosciutto, drizzle your mojo verde sauce. Guests can pick their bite that includes all the components.
