How To Make Deep Fried Mozzarella Ball Salad



For deep-fried balls:

  • 1 ½ cup small Mozzarella balls

  • 1 cup dried breadcrumbs

  • 1 egg

  • 1 tsp dried basil

  • ½ tsp dried oregano

  • 1 cup olive oil

For salad:

  • 5 cups mixed herb salad packed


  • 1 tomato chopped


  • 2 tbs olive oil


  • ¾ tbs Balsamic Vinegar


  • ¼ tsp sugar


  • ground pepper


  1. Beat egg in a small sized bowl.

  • Pour breadcrumbs in another bowl, mix in dried herbs, and place bowl beside beaten egg.

  • Drain and pat Mozzarella balls dry with paper towel.

  • Dip balls first into the egg, then in the breadcrumbs until coated.

  • Once balls are coated, cover, and chill for at least two hours (or overnight).

  • Pour olive oil in a saucepan. Put on medium heat.

  • Slowly drop balls into the heated oil a few at a time.

  • Once balls brown (about 2 minutes), carefully remove them from oil with a slotted spoon, and place on paper towels laid on a plate.

  • In a clean bowl whisk together 2 tbsp olive oil with Balsamic Vinegar. Add sugar and ground pepper.

  • Drizzle salad with vinaigrette. Serve with chopped tomatoes and deep-fried Mozzarella balls on top.
