I’ve been experimenting with food at home for a while now, and I absolutely love trying out different cuisines. This time around, I fell in love with some fresh cheeses. 🧀 Bocconcini & Ricotta being my favourites. Here’s a quick & easy salad recipe for you, if you’re gonna try Bocconcini for the first time. Comes together very easily with a few pantry staples, and you can add or omit things as per your taste.
Fresh Bocconcini (ofcourse!)
Cherry tomatoes- halved
Onions – Sliced
Avocado – cubes
Few Basil leaves
For the dressing:
Finely chopped garlic
Salt & pepper
All you gotta do is assemble the salad – cut the cherry tomatoes in halves or quarters (I like mine chunky), slice the onions, cut the avocado into cubes, chop up some basil leaves & mix it all in a bowl. Add the Bocconcini, you can either tear these small balls into halves or cut into smaller pieces, as you like. Toss that in the bowl along with a few capers.
Now for the dressing – in a small glass bottle, add some olive oil, squeeze of lemon juice, finely chopped garlic, some crushed capers, honey, salt & pepper as per taste. I also like to add some chili flakes for flavour. You can also add the zest of a lemon, It adds an amazing freshness to the salad. Now close the lid & give it a good shake.
Last step is to pour the dressing over the salad & toss it all together. Plate it in a nice bowl & enjoy! You can have it as is, or with a side of some grilled garlic bread to make it a complete meal. That easy!!

Ps: I haven’t added measurements as I usually just add things as per my taste & this isn’t really a recipe blog.. 😁
