The best part of dairy, in my opinion, is by far what is considered FRESH CHEESE. It comes in so some many different textures, from so many different milks, from different animals, all having its own unique flavor. Different cheeses are to be enjoyed in different settings. One of my favorites however, due to its versatility, is mozzarella. The range in flavor from different mozzarella is extraordinary, and I can always make use of it in whatever dish I am cooking. One of my favorites is Stella Fresh Mozzarella. I love to use Stella’s to either just cut up and enjoy with some fresh tomato, basil, olive oil, and a nice balsamic vinaigrette for a fresh salad (so simple!), or sometimes I’ll step it up a notch and transform into a tasty melted delight. For today’s post, I’m going to share with you a grilled portabello caprese! Click here to receive a coupon towards your Stella Fresh Mozzarella purchase.
