Bocconcini Salad with Tre Stelle

I am a huge cheese fan.  I could eat cheese every day.  And often, I do.  I enjoy all kinds of cheese - cheddar cheese, goat cheese, get the idea!  I love trying new cheeses, and recently we were given the opportunity to try Tre Stelle cheeses.  As always, excited to try new things, and to find a new recipe, I did a little searching and found a salad recipe that I thought
Bocconcini Salad - Addicted to Recipes
might work with our dinner.  Here is the recipe:

Bocconcini Salad (Source: Food Network)

1 pint cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
1 200 g container Tre Stelle bocconcini (I used the mini-mini)
1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
Olive Oil

In a bowl, combine the cherry tomatoes, bocconcini, basil and garlic.  Drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and pepper (to taste).  Serve, and enjoy!


This was the perfect compliment to our BBQ – such a nice, light treat with the fresh bocconcini, the fresh tomatoes, the fresh basil..oh my!  Our 6 year old "downed" his salad before he touched anything else on his plate - a true compliment!  I look forward to making this one again!

Be sure to check out all the great Tre Stelle products and...RECIPES over at the Tre Stelle website, and on Facebook too! (great contests currently running on Facebook!)

Disclosure - I received product in exchange for my honest opinion.  The views expressed in this post are solely my own.


  1. This looks so yummy!!!!! Will have to try !!!!

  2. Mmm, looks yummy. I also love wrapping boconncini in puff pastry and dipping them in tomato sauce.
