Tomatoes and mozzarella information
Mozzarella is an Italian cheese traditionally made from buffalo milk, but can also be made from cow's milk. It has a white, soft texture and a mild, creamy flavor. Mozzarella is often used in Italian cuisine, especially in dishes such as caprese salad, pizza and various pasta dishes.
Tomatoes are a fruit that belong to the nightshade family. They are round or oval in shape and have a bright red color. Tomatoes are rich in vitamins C and A, as well as various antioxidants. They are used in various cuisines around the world, especially in Mediterranean and Italian cuisine. Tomatoes can be eaten raw, but also used in sauces, soups, salads and many other dishes.
A popular combination is mozzarella and tomato, as in the Caprese salad above. The two ingredients complement each other well, as the mild creaminess of the mozzarella enhances the fresh and juicy flavor of the tomato. This combination is also often used on pizzas and tarte flambée, especially in the form of Margherita pizza, which is made with mozzarella, tomatoes and basil.
