It was a boring Monday when all of a sudden, I wanted to do something special for the entire week. I have always been someone who thrusts cooking meals to my mother or my sisters. However, today, I really want to learn how to cook the ones I love eating. Because I know that this is one of my favorite cheeses, I started searching for a delicious Bufala Mozzarella Cheese recipe. This is what I found:
Twice Grilled Peppers with Buffalo Mozzarella and Caper-Basil Vinaigrette
The ingredients are as follows:
3 red bell peppers
3 yellow bell peppers
3 orange bell peppers
3 tablespoons olive oil
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper Italian or French bread , thinly sliced and grilled 1 pound Buffala Mozzarella Cheese, cut into 1/4-inch thick slices
Fresh basil leaves, for garnish
1. Put your grill to high. Brush bell peppers with 2 tablespoons of the oil and season with 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper; grill the peppers until charred on all sides. Set aside for ten minutes on a clean plastic wrap covered bowl. and then remove the skin from the peppers, brush them with the remaining oil and season with salt and pepper, and place back on the grill and cook until slightly charred on all sides.
2. You can start slicing the peppers to fit the bread slices or you may do it in quarters. Place a slice of mozzarella over each pepper and drizzle with the Caper-Basil Vinaigrette. Serve immediately after garnishing it with fresh basil leaves.
For the Caper-Basil Vinaigrette
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup pure olive oil
2 tablespoons capers, drained 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves
1. Whisk together the vinegar, mustard, garlic, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl.
2. Until it emulsifies, you can slowly whisk the oil. Then add the capers and basil.
I didn’t realize that my parents and my sister have been waiting for me to finish the dish. They all stormed inside the kitchen when they realized that it already cooked. Everybody seemed to love it! I have to thank the cheese shop online today!
