About this recipe: Bite-size balls of fresh mozzarella, known as bocconcini, make up this scrumptous 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.


Serves: 4 

  • 500g (1 lb) bocconcini (mini mozzarella balls)
  • 8 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 head chicory
  • 75g (3 oz) coarsely chopped rocket
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • half a bunch fresh basil leaves, chopped

Prep:15min  ›  Ready in:15min
