All you need to do is follow the easy steps below and you’ll be well on your way to having a great meal.
Mozzarella di buffola
Extra Virgin Olive oil
Salt and pepper
- Slice the cherry tomatoes using a sharp knife and place in a bowl. Place a few basil leaves in the same container, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and the bowl with cellophane and set aside.
- Next, wash some rucola and spread out on a plate. Place olives on the rucola and add the tomato mixture that was previously set aside to your salad.
- After, drain the mozzarella from all the access water it’s been stored with. Chop up into slices and season with rock salt and ground pepper. Last but not least, drizzle some olive oil and balsamic vinegar on the white cheese and dig in!
