Mozzarella di Bufala, Orange, Pomegranate & Rucola Salad


I went to the market last Sunday and everything was so colorful, beautiful, fresh and tempting…amazing ! I found some pomegranate, beautiful oranges and mozzarella di bufala (much easier to digest than the regular milk mozzarella). Pomegranate is simply delicious and has lots of antioxidants !

To cut a pomegranate, wear an apron and cut both extreme sides of the grenade with a sharp knife. Then cut the fruit into quarters and then soak them into a water bowl. With your hands, slowly remove the seeds and they will float at the surface (and you will not paint your kitchen with pomegranate juice! )

Serves 2 people.


  • 200g rucola
  • 1 large mozzarella di bufala ball, drained and sliced
  • 2 large oranges, quartered and peeled (even remove the white skin on the flesh)
  • 1 cup promegranate seeds (1 small size or half a large promegranate)
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • the juice of one lemon
  • Guérande salt and pepper
  • parmesan and chopped fresh mint leaves to serve (optional)


  1. In a bowl, mix the rucola, the mozzarella, the orange quarters and the pomegranate seeds
  2. Drizzle with olive oil, lemon juice, season to taste and mix well all the ingredients
  3. Serve with shaved parmesan and chopped fresh mint leaves

Enjoy !
