Italian Burrata Caprese

In Global Lifestyle by Lisa Soldo-JohnsonLeave a Comment

I’ve never met a Burrata salad I didn’t like. There is something magical about this Italian cheese that makes everything it’s paired with “Magnifico!”  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 like 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 cheese but my favorite combination includes Burrata cheese combined with tomatoes topped with micro greens and a splash of olive oil and balsamic sauce. The beautiful marriage of flavor, texture, and visual appeal creates a gorgeous dish for any occasion.

I hope you enjoy this recipe! If you’ve made it please share it with me by tagging @culinary.butterfly on Instagram or @culinarybutterfly on Pinterest, or by using the hashtag #culinarybutterfly on Facebook
