Basil Infused Mozzarella Recipe

I first saw this concept on the Ideas In Food blog and it's a great way to make flavorful mozzarella. The aroma of the basil is transferred to the mozzarella, flavoring it and imbuing it with basil essence. Once the mozzarella is infused I like to serve it in a flavorful salad by adding roasted cherry tomatoes and pine nuts.
