If you’ve had burrata you know it’s the arguably better version of fresh mozzarella in that it tastes similarly but has an amazingly creamy center!
I’ve paired this fresh burrata I got from a nearby Italian deli with a variety of small, sweet tomatoes (red, yellow, and a purple-ish color). This dish takes only 5 minutes to prep and requires very little ingreidents! Just some salt, pepper, olive oil and basil for garnish or you can slice it up thin and top it. Also an optional addition would be a balsamic vinegar or even a balsamic glaze!
- 1 or 2 burrata balls
- 10 oz (approximately) of small, sweet tomatoes sliced in half
- kosher salt
- fresh cracked black pepper
- extra virgin olive oil
- chopped basil
- balsamic vinegar or balsamic glaze
Place your burrata ball(s) in the center of a shallow bowl.
Place halved tomatoes around in a circle, with the cut side facing up.
Season generously with kosher salt and freshly cracked pepper. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil. Cut into the burrata to expose the inside and then enjoy!
Top with chopped basil
Top with balsamic vinegar/glaze
