When I think of fresh mozzarella, I think of Caprese salads—and I know that many cheese lovers do, too. And doesn’t Crave Brothers Farmstead Cheese know it!
The company, synonymous with artisan cheese, is offering a variety of fresh mozzarella sizes and shapes to complement every size of tomato, just in case consumers need a little prep for their plate and retailers want to promote it. Add a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar—or balsamic glaze—and you’re ready to enjoy a seasonal sensation, the company adds.
The company recommends currant-sized cherry tomatoes combined with Crave Brothers Fresh Mozzarella Perlines (pearl-size) to make an eye-catching mini Caprese Salad.
This is a great opportunity for cross-merchandising at retail as well whether you pick a location in fresh produce or in the deli department, or bring olive oil and basil to the forefront. Give shoppers a reason to think of the pairing and watch sales soar!
To sweeten the deal, Crave Brothers Ciliegines (cherry-size Fresh Mozzarella balls) make a great accompaniment for cherry tomato Caprese salads. Consumers can tweak the recipe a little by adding pitted ripe olives to the mix and for a memorable variation, make the salad with Crave Brothers Marinated Fresh Mozzarella Ciliegines and dress the Caprese with a drizzle of the marinade featuring a custom blend of herbs and spices, Crave Brothers continues.
Curious about the range of other options to make your dishes more creative and delicious? Crave Brothers Bocconcini (golf ball size) Fresh Mozzarella and Crave Brothers Fresh Mozzarella Ovolines will do the trick as well.
There is no stopping this visionary on the frontlines of cheese—and we will not be getting in its way!
