    -Sylvie-'s Note:

    This recipe makes a Tomato, a Basil and a Yoghurt Marinade for fresh mozzarella. I have only tried the basil and almond marinade myself so far and really enjoyed it. All three were written as one recipe, so I thought I might as well post them all. From 'Meine Familie & Ich', a German food and cooking magazine. It's perfect served with toasted chiabatta or foccacia bread.

      I used the Basil Marinade which was plenty for 1 pound of cheese. I used balsamic vinegar. As I was making it was thinking garlic would be great in it but didn`t. And I didn`t miss it! This was wonderful 3 of us ate the whole delish pound of cheese enjoying every slice.
