"This is my second order for your oregano and I would like to say that it is the "BEST" I have ever used. It is better, much better, than my own home grown oregano. I want to thank you people for a superior product that I absolutely love and so do the friends I share it with...God Bless"   Charles W.,  Plainville, Connecticut

Fresh Ricotta Wrapped In Mortadella
Fresh Ricotta Wrapped In Mortadella
(Ricotta Fresca Avvolta In Mortadella)
12 to 14 thin slices mortadella (about 8 ounces)
12 ounces fresh ricotta (or substitute fresh goat cheese)
12 fresh basil leaves
3 cups young dandelion greens or other tender bitter greens
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
Coarse sea salt
Preheat a gas grill or prepare a fire in a charcoal grill.

Lay 12 slices of mortadella out on a work surface.

Place 2 tablespoons of the cheese in the very center of each slice, shaping it loosely into a log running across the slice.

Place a basil leaf on top of each mound of cheese.

Fold the bottom of each slice over the cheese, then fold over the sides and roll the cheese up in the mortadella.

Secure each one with a toothpick.

Place the mortadella packets seam side up on the hottest part of the grill and cook until lightly charred on the bottom, about 2 minutes.

Turn over and repeat on the second side, about 2 minutes longer.

Transfer to a platter.

In a medium bowl, toss the dandelion greens with the olive oil and then the vinegar.

Season with coarse sea salt and pile the greens over the hot and mortadella packets.

Serve immediately. Serves 4.
