Grilled Vegetables, Stracciata Cheese & Agrumato® Citron

Feel free to swap in your favorite summer vegetables for the eggplant and zucchini. If you can't find Stracciata Abruzzese cheese, burrata or even stracciatella make great substitutes. A few confited cherry tomatoes would make this dish even more special!
