Charred broccolini with buffalo mozzarella and honey-roasted grape tomatoes-shaved jalapeños

Unlike regular fresh mozzarella, which is on the firmer side, buffalo mozzarella is incredibly moist. In fact, it totally falls apart the minute you slice it. And it’s exactly what makes this dish so mouthwatering.

Here the marvelous cheese is paired with charred broccolini, honey-roasted cherry tomatoes and paper-thin slices of fresh jalapeño. Every forkful of this dish is creamy-yet-light, sweet-and-spicy… and even a bit smoky. In one word: sublime!

Plus it makes for a colorful first course or antipasto that’s super easy to prepare.

Bon appétit!

Charred and roasted are such wonderful words :-) Everything looks so good and yes buffalo mozzarella is in a class of it’s own.
