Here’s a little tip for you . . .
One of my favorite things in the summer is fresh Mozzarella cheese – well, as fresh as we can get it here in Kansas!
I use it all different ways – with tomatoes, in omelets, on homemade pizza, salads and on a bagel or heck, sometimes just by itself. It is just something I use all the time. I hope you do too!
I shop all 3 local grocery stores here in Hutchinson and, I do a lot of grocery shopping. I think if I were on the Price Is Right, I could hold my own. You may be asking yourself why you should care – well, you should because whenever I see a good deal, I am going to share it with you. Aren’t you lucky, another benefit for reading this blog!
The buy right now is at Dillon’s, and yes, it is on fresh mozzarella cheese. A one pound package is on sale for $4.99 (regular price is $8.99). That is a HUGE savings and cheaper than all other stores in town. And, the tag stated this sale is going on through October 11th. You will find this in the deli department – not with the cheeses by the eggs (just a little tip).
What a deal – at that price you could try all kinds of recipes and ideas. If you have any favorite ideas, I would love for you to let me know.
Here is one idea for you. Kim and I just catered an event, and we used fresh mozzarella in mini caprese skewers. Just thread grape tomatoes, diced fresh mozzarella, and a basil leaf on mini skewers or toothpicks. Drizzle your tray with balsamic vinegar and olive oil. We marinated ours in a balsamic dressing. Very light and refreshing!
Another little tip I have – since I have sliced pounds and pounds of this stuff, I find using my steak knife with those little teeth works wonders! I keep a steak knife in my kitchen just to slice my cheese – give it a try, you might find it handy!
Happy shopping and stay tuned for the next great buy I come across!
