Italian Burrata Caprese

Italian Gift From Above

I’ve never met a burrata salad I didn’t like. There is something simply magical about this Italian cheese that makes everything it’s paired with “Magnifico!” There is an interesting experience that happens when biting into burrata cheese that makes the act of eating it a bit of an adventure.

Created in Southern Italy at the beginning of the 20th century, the burrata cheese name comes from the Italian word “Burro” meaning butter. Burrata is similar to Mozzarella cheese on the outside and filled with a soft, creamy cheese that oozes onto the plate when sliced in half.

There are so many ways to enjoy this “Italian gift from above,” but my favorite combination includes burrata cheese combined with beets or tomatoes over micro greens or a small bed of arugula and a splash of olive oil and balsamic sauce, which creates a beautiful marriage of taste, texture, and delight. It’s really not complicated to bring this elegantly flavorful salad to your dinner table. With just a few simple ingredients and a bit of burrata, then watch the magic begin!
