On a recent trip to Italy I rediscovered Burrata, and now I can’t get enough of it!
If you’re not familiar with this cheese, then I urge you to try it asap…it’s so so good.
Burrata is a fresh, semi-soft italian cheese, similar to a fresh mozzarella ball, on the outside, however the inside of the burrata is filled with a creamy mixture of super fresh mozzarella curds and cream…heavenly!
It can be used in many ways as you can imagine, and I will be sharing some more Burrata recipes very soon…but right now, I am loving it in its most basic form…in this salad.
My one suggestion for success is to go out and splurge on a small bottle of really good balsamic vinegar. You only need a thin drizzle of it to dress this salad to perfection.
This recipe serves one perfectly, on its own as a light lunch, or as a starter to your meal.

Place your Burrata in centre of a salad bowl.
Cut cherry tomatoes in half and add to bowl, then add olives and basil leaves.
Lightly drizzle salad with balsamic and enjoy.
