Tomato & Burrata Salad

with extra virgin olive oil & balsamic reduction

For those of you who have not discovered the amazing creamy and utterly delicious burrata yet, then now is the time to do so!  It is a pouch of Italian cheese that literally translates into “buttered” and takes mozzarella one-step further from its super creamy filling that is rich in flavor.  Technically, it is considered mozzarella cheese, which is then formed into a pouch and filled with super soft, stringy curd and cream giving it an unusually light texture.

Versatile since it can be served sweet or savory, for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, or a Snack, this cheese is a favorite of mine.  I either smear it on a toasted baguette with some fig jam or eat it in a salad with fresh tomatoes, and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and a little balsamic reduction.  It is sweet and tangy, without being overpowering amongst other ingredients.  If I could, I would probably eat this with every meal since it is just that good and can be quite addicting.

Burrata is definitely not just cheese.  I consider it to be a small slice of heaven that gets better with each bite.
