Figs and buffalo mozzarella salad

The fig is a false fruit or multiple fruit, in which the flowers and seeds grow together to form a single mass. The fig fruits, important as both food and traditional medicine, contain laxative substances, flavonoids, sugars, vitamins A and C, acids and enzymes. Buffalo mozzarella is a mozzarella made from the milk of the domestic water buffalo. In Italy, the cheese is produced in almost all nation using Italian buffalo's milk. The digestive system of water buffaloes permits them to turn low grade vegetation into rich milk which, due to its higher percentage of solids, provides higher levels of protein, fat and minerals than cow milk. Generally, buffalo mozzarella is enjoyed with pasta, calzone, vegetable, salad, on pizza, on grilled bread, or by itself accompanied by olive oil.
