  • Combine flour, salt, and pepper in a shallow bowl. Place eggs and bread crumbs in two separate shallow bowls.
  • Dredge each slice of mozzarella in flour, shaking off excess; dip into egg to coat, letting excess drip off. Coat in bread crumbs, pressing gently to adhere before shaking off excess. Place on a sheet pan.
  • Pour olive oil to 1/2-inch deep in a medium-sized skillet; heat oil over medium heat. Cook breaded mozzarella, in batches, for two minutes, turning halfway through, until golden brown. Be careful not to overcook as the cheese will begin to melt. Transfer to a paper towel lined sheet pan.
  • Place the lettuce from the Fresh Express® Twisted Pesto Caesar Chopped Salad Kits® into a large bowl; toss with the salad dressings. Add the toppings; toss to combine.
  • Divide the salad evenly among four plates. Top each with two mozzarella fritters.


Tip: It’s best to buy an unsliced log of mozzarella cheese because you can cut thicker slices; the precut slices are thinner and melt more quickly when fried.
