Il Villaggio Mozzarella & Fresh Melon Salad
Subtle and scrumptious, Il Villaggio Mozzarella is very versatile due to its low salt content. That makes it easy to throw together an irresistible fruit and cheese salad salad. Cube watermelon, honeydew and cantaloupe and mix with chopped strawberries and grapes. Separate Il Villaggio Mozzarella into bites and mix it in with the fruit. Add freshly chopped basil, a little sugar and a dash of lemon juice before tossing.
Il Villaggio Parmigano Reggiano, Arugula & Peach Salad
Parmigiano Reggiano’s rich and spicy flavor is ideal for a salad with just a few bold ingredients. Toss some peppery arugula with olive oil and freshly squeezed lemon juice. Shave some thin slices of Il Villaggio Parmigiano-Reggiano over the top to create a savory salad, then chop up some peaches – the sweetness will really balance out the other flavors.
Il Villaggio Ricotta Kale, Apple & Salad
Il Villaggio Ricotta Salata has a supple, mild taste. Nutty, with a sweet milky flavor, it’s delicious with kale. Together, they make a truly unique salad. Toss some kale with a mixture of finely chopped shallots, lemon juice and olive oil. Then grate some salty Il Villaggio Ricotta Salata over the top, and add chopped bites of apple for a sweet and crunchy contrast!
