Mozzarella, pesto, and celery salad

– textural contrasts, punchy flavour, made in five minutes!

There is the lovely contrast between the crunchy celery and the soft, smoochy mozzarella (mozzarella sounds like the perfect name for a gloriously blousy lady, don’t you think?).

“Well, hello there…. my name’s Mozzarella….”

And there is also the basil punch of flavour, and the umami of the pecorino in the pesto. If you have a few red radicchio leaves to hand, the pop of red among the green looks grand.

It’s got everything including simplicity and ease.

Goes well with ham, chicken, steak, or breaded fish.
