Mango Caprese

The nice folks at the Mozzarella Co. make fresh mozz like you never tasted. This week we are featuring Scamorza on the tasting plate, but I went with it's non-smoked, conservative cousin. The mild mozzarella brings out the creaminess in a perfectly ripe mango. This salad is surprising; flavors are balanced, but still interesting. So good! 

1 ball fresh mozzarella, sliced 
1 mango, peeled and sliced
Cilantro leaves (about 10 - 12 leaves or to taste) 
Arugula (about 2 handfuls) 
Extra virgin olive oil
Aged balsamic vinegar
Freshly ground black pepper and sea salt, to taste

* Serves 2

Slice mozzarella ball into 5 or 6 1/2 inch slices. Overlap arugula, mangoes, slices of mozzarella, and cilantro leaves on one large serving plate or 2 individual plates. Drizzle with olive oil and vinegar, season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.
