Marinated mozzarella with tomato

I made this marinated mozzarella with tomato as a starter yesterday and it was a really striking looking dish and very tasty. The recipe is by Yotam Ottolenghi Marinated buffalo mozzarella and tomato from his vegetarian cookbook Plenty (p. 126-127). It can also be found online here. It's a simple and fine dish like Ottolenghi says.

I followed Ottolenghi's recipe otherwise, but scaled it down by the half, as there were only two eaters. The dish was exquisit: lemony, garlicky mozzarella with a punch of qualitative olive oil and a flavour of the fennel seeds going through accompanied by tasty local tomatoes. I will definitely serve this as a starter at a future dinner party and can only recommend it.

  1. Mmm, that looks a great way to pepp up a mozzarella and tomato salad - which, to be honest, doesn't need much pepping up :-)

    1. I know, it would be perfect as it is, but this really made a nice change to the normal combos.


Thanks for reading! I would very much appreciate any comments or suggestions from you.
