Marinated Buffalo Mozzarella Salad

After our west coast adventures, H. and I spent a wonderful 2 1/2 weeks in Nova Scotia. I fully anticipated updating the blog as I went, as I’ve done in previous years. But this time the time sped by like I’ve never know it to before. I barely had a chance to check my email, let alone update the blog. That, I suppose, is a good thing; time away from the internet is always restorative, and this way, I can relive the many amazing meals I enjoyed while we were there!

For 12 days of the 2 1/2-week period, H. and I dog- and house-sat in Sandy Cove, which I’ve written from and about before. Our first night there we had the arduous (ha!) task of using up leftovers and left-behinds, which happened to include buffalo mozzarella and flank steak, among many other things. S. suggested Ottolenghi’s now-famous dish (which we’d actually had before at her house in Toronto) and of course H. and I were both immediately on board.

This is a delicious starter or accompanying salad and easy to make with the right good-quality ingredients as mentioned in the link below. We had ours with our meal (coming shortly) but it also works as a stand-alone starter.

Recipe available here.

“(There is still time) To go bird watching, beach combing or body surfing. To float down a river on an intertube or walk through a field of flowers. To wear your salty bathing suit to dinner. To shuck oysters and eat lobster. To sit on a giant rock, looking out at the great vast ocean, contemplating how small you are and how good it feels to be alive.
