I love mini bocconcini. Bocconcini, for those who don’t know, is an Italian semi-soft unripened cheese which can be found in varying sizes. It has a very mild taste and a spongy, slightly cheesy texture. Paired with grape tomatoes and basil leaves, the trio create a balanced, colourful salad. It’s a really simple notion, but believe me, it tastes pretty darn good.
This is one of those dishes which don’t have a specific formula or recipe. In a small bowl toss the same amount of grape tomatoes as mini bocconcini. You can cut them in half if you like. Rip a small handful of basil leaves over top and drizzle some olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and enjoy immediately.
