Yummmm! the perfect accompaniment to a rather heavy main – or as a starter – or to take with you as a snack at work perhaps?

You will need

  • mozzarella di bufala
  • pine nuts (roasted)
  • nectarines/peaches/strawberries or any of your favourite fruit
  • balsamic glaze

The pine nuts will brown very quickly in a dry pan. Simply toss for a few minutes.

Peel and chop up your fruit. We used nectarines this time and the result was superb. Slice your mozzarella and place in alternate layers with the fruit. Throw the pine nuts in and get creative with your balsamic glaze. You can leave this in the fridge overnight so it may be prepared a day early.

      SO very yum!! I find it’s best to keep it simple with mozzarella di bufola… although the next time I will be adding some rucola mmm

    I would have never combined Bufola with fruit. I am intrigued & it’s healthy πŸ™‚

      I love putting fruit in my salads, especially summer juicy ones. Apples are great in winter too. And yes, it’s quite healthy and filling too!

    πŸ˜€ Yay I’m glad to see someone else doing this! About a week ago I made a yummy salad for lunch with sliced peaches, regular mozzarella, a little rucola and olive oil – noms!

    Great blog btw, I’m really enjoying it πŸ™‚
