Bocconcini Salad

Rated as 4.19 out of 5 Stars

"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."

We really enjoyed this, but I made a couple of significant changes. I have yet to find an authentic Italian deli here that sells fresh bocconcini, and the prepackaged, commercial stuff is flavor...

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...

Absolutely delightful, clean, fresh and very easy to prepare. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and basil. Voila! Lemon dressing is light and clean. This salad looks great, is colorful and would go ...

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!

Great salad! Only thing I changed was I used regular leaf lettuce in place of the arugala. Delicious thanks for the recipe.

very tasty and filling salad, very light.

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!
