All Hail the Magnificent Mozzarella di Bufala.

Buffalo mozzarella is best enjoyed in simple recipes that highlight its creamy taste.

This photo of Mozzarella di Bufula was taken in a little side street cafe in Rome that my husband and I ducked into for a bite to eat and quick respite from the scorching summer sun.

The clean, fresh, creamy flavour of Buffalo Mozzarella is one of the best accompaniments to salad I can think of. Made from the milk of domestic water buffalo in central and south Italy – it is higher in calcium & protein, and lower in cholesterol than ordinary cow’s milk.

If you can get your hands on this cheese, sweet tomatoes, fresh basil and some good quality olive oil – then you can make yourself a lovely Tricolore salad.
