Bocconcini Salad

Bocconcini Salad

9

"Bite-size balls of fresh mozzarella, known as bocconcini, make up this great salad. If possible, seek out mozzarella di bufala, made from water buffalo's milk; a specialty of central and southern Italy, it is a softer, creamier mozzarella than that made from cow's milk."

Left out the celery and the endive. Used arugula just as it was and didn't chop. Upped the amount of fresh basil and used strips of green and red pepper instead of just chopping the green pepper...

The store didn't have endive so I had to omit that. I'm not a big fan of raw bell pepper but it worked really well in this. Think I'll try it with goats cheese next time. Thanks!

very tasty and filling salad, very light.

This was so flavorful! I did make a few changes cause I'm not a fan of lemony vinaigrettes. I used Ken's Italian dressing instead. Also I only put 3 mozzarella balls per salad and I marinated th...

We enjoyed this but I also made a few adjustments. I omitted the celery, added one sweet red and orange peppers (thinly sliced), added one tablespoon spicy mustard and one packet Splenda! Yum!
