This lovely idea was brought to us by my neighbor who writes Shredded Sprout. I followed her recipe to a tee aside from one thing – fresh buffalo mozzarella. It was Memorial Day. I had run to Fresh Market, Heinens (closed), a local Italian restaurant (closed) and finally in a desperate attempt, Jewel. At that point I gave up and bought the freshest (regular) mozzarella I could find.
And you know what?
It worked. Really really well.
So if you are balancing baseball schedules and playdates and nap schedules and just don’t have the time to run around to find a (sometimes) more difficult ingredient it’s ok. I promise. My version was gobbled up! I had to cut myself off after 4 (large) pieces to save room for dinner.
It’s also good to know that this one will only get better as this season goes on. Freshly picked summer tomatoes and if you get lucky that friendly cheese guy at the market might just carry exactly what we’re looking for.
Want the recipe? Of course you do. Head on over here. She walks you through it well.
