Bocconcini Pasta Salad

< back to recipes

Floridia Bocconcini, Fiore di latte, Ovolini and Pearls are natural cheeses made from fresh pasteurized cow’s milk. Made from Mozzarella (pasta filata) are available in various sizes depending on your preference. White in colour, semi-soft, rindless and unripened they are packed in tubs filled with brine. These bite-sized cheeses have a refreshingly delicate and creamy aroma with an elastic texture and consistency. Best consumed fresh, Italians enjoy drizzling with Extra Virgin Olive, as a centrepiece in salads or sliced on a pizza.

Buttery, mild and sweet
