Mozzarelline con pomodorini

Cherry tomatoes & mozzarella   Our original home cooking

This salad of cherry mozzarella and cherry tomatoes is another way to make a Caprese. Instead of slicing cheese and ripe tomatoes in a bowl, I join the small sizes of both. The time is the same but it seems to eat anything else. I also find it very useful when I make this recipe for a meal, buffet-style. Each guest can serve himself more easily with a spoon.

Cherry tomato and mozzarella salad recipe


  • - Wash cherry tomatoes under running water and pat dry with absorbent kitchen paper.
    Halve them.
  • - Put them in a bowl together with cherry mozzarella, chives, olive oil and, if you like it, 2 teaspoons hot chilli pepper-flavored olive oil.
  • - Season to taste with salt and stir.

Just before serving

  • - Your dish is ready to be served!



  • - You should not prepare this summer salad in advance to avoid the mozzarella emit water. At most, you can prepare it in advance, chill and add the mozzarella cheese just before serving. I do so preparing a buffet dinner party.

Menu planning

  • - It's a good one-plate meal. You can accompany it with a seasonal salad or boiled vegetables such as spinach. Obviously you have to serve it with some good bread.
  • - But it is excellent in a meal, buffet-style too or as a starter to open a full menu. In these cases it serves more people.
