Mozzarella and cucumber salad

When it comes packed lunches I am one of those people who tends to use leftovers but every now and then I like to prepare a packed lunch. This beautiful mozzarella and cucumber salad is very easy and is perfect for a quick packed lunch.

Mozzarella and cucumber salad

Now lets talk about the two main  ingredients in this lovely salad.

Persian cucumbers I used Persian cucumbers for this salad because they travel well compared to other cucumber varieties which lose their water quickly. Persian cucumbers also have softer skin and smaller seeds than other cucumbers which makes them perfect for salads. Fun fact, cucumbers are technically fruits but are used as a vegetable.

Fresh Mozzarella  Feta cheese would have worked fine for this salad however mozzarella is perfect. I used buffalo mozzarella which is by far the best mozzarella cheese. Yes, it costs more than cow’s milk mozzarella cheese but its worth the splurge. After all you would have probably used that extra money for a latte at one of those fancy coffee shops.

Let me know if you try this Mozzarella and cucumber salad recipe, you can shoot me direct message or tag me on Instagram. I am always looking forward to hearing from you. You can also try the ultimate orzo pasta salad . This is one of my favorite as it tastes even better the next day and therefore is a great salad to pack for lunch.

  1. What a lovely salad. Especially with the summer months coming when I crave foods that are lighter and we’ll have fresh cucumbers from the garden. Plus, mozzarella makes everything just a little bit better!

  2. This looks absolutely delicious, and I love the way you sliced the cucumber! Why have I not done that before? It looks so fresh and fabulous, like it could be my new favorite!
