Today there is another approach for a really refreshing mozzarella dip perfect for fresh baguette accompanied by crisp white wine.

I found this recipe years ago at Jamie Oliver; during one of his TV shows he simply chopped & mixed everything. You know his casual style of cooking … which I really like!

The result doesn’t look so spectacular, but it tastes like freshness, lightness, melting in your mouth!

What do we need?

It’s just:

  • zest of an organic lemon
  • buffalo mozzarella
  • Greek yoghurt.

We start w/ grating the lemon zest & add it to the Greek yoghurt.

Then we chop the buffalo mozzarella – roughly!

We mix all together w/ a spoon & add freshly grated pepper & a pinch of salt!


Grab a plate & arrange some tablespoons of the mozzarella mix w/ fresh baguette, some green olives (or black olives), some fresh tomatoes (or dried tomatoes), some prosciutto crudo (or prosciutto cotto or salame).

(We are still in Northern Spain … so just working w/ olives from Spain, jamón serrano & chorizo!)

lemon flavoured mozzarella
Prep Time15 minutes
Servings: 2
  • 1 buffalo mozzarella (about 125 g)
  • zest of 1 organic lemon
  • 100 g Greek yoghurt (or sour cream)
  • salt & pepper
how to:
  • Grate the lemon zest.
  • Chop the mozzarella.
  • Mix Greek yoghurt resp. sour cream w/ chopped mozzarella & lemon zest.
  • Add salt & pepper.
Organic lemon: Depending on the size of the lemon as well as your preference of intensity of lemon flavour you may use the zest of half a lemon as well as zest of the whole lemon.
Lemon juice: you may add some lemon juice (about 1 tsp) if you like – I don’t like it.
Salt & pepper: I prefer few salt, but lots of freshly ground pepper.
The lemon flavoured mozzarella can be prepared some hours in advance; it should be stored in the fridge. The mozzarella mess thickens a little bit in the fridge – it doesn’t matter!
