This looks and tastes like its dairy counterpart: fresh mozzarella made from buffalo’s milk, formed into balls, and packed in brine. Serve this cheese in Caprese Salad or use it in a caprese sandwich—like the salad, made with freshly sliced tomatoes, fresh basil, and a drizzle of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. When baked, this cheese softens but doesn’t really melt, so if you’re making pizza or a dish like lasagne, use Meltable Mozzarella or Meltable Muenster instead.
