So we’ve all had caprese salad right?
And it’s a favorite of ours.
Not only is it easy…
But it’s delicious too!
But this ain’t your average caprese…
This is with some gorgeous heirloom tomatoes from our local CSA.
And some buttery divine burrata cheese.
Burrata is fresh italian cheese made of mozzarella and cream.
It’s a hard mozzarella shell outside and soft mozzarella and cream inside.
When you serve it a room temperature it oozes out all over spreading its gooey goodness all over anything in it’s path.
In this case, it’s the heirloom tomato and basil…
Check it out.
WHAT YOU NEED:
2 cups mixed greens
1 -2 heirloom tomatoes, cut into large chunks
1 ball of fresh burrata, room temperature
10 large leaves basil, torn
Handful of chopped parsley
Fresh ground pepper
Really good extra virgin olive oil
Dash of good balsamic vinegar
Crusty bread for dipping
WHAT TO DO:
On a large serving platter, spread out your mixed greens.
Arrange tomatoes on top of greens.
Top tomato with cheese. Cut cheese open (make sure it’s room temp) and let it melt over tomato.
Top with torn basil leaves, parsley, S&P, vinegar, and olive oil.
Use bread to scoop it up and enjoy.
