Heirloom Tomato and Burrata Salad with Garlic Blossoms and Basil. As beautiful to look at as it is delicious to share as a meal for two or an appetizer for four.
A simple combination of tomatoes, creamy burrata cheese (yes, that’s another super-fun affiliate link), fresh basil leaves and tender garlic blossoms. My food-loving friends, this is the perfect salad to showcase summer tomatoes from the farmers market.
Burrata is a semi-soft Italian cheese similar to mozzarella but with the most amazing buttery cream filled interior.
When you pull open a ball of soft burrata (take note of the delightfully shameless affiliate link) you’ll find several thick outer mozzarella layers wrapped around that delicious runny center.
Utterly delicious. (Perhaps ‘udderly’, as in cow udder? This is a cow’s milk cheese after all.)
If you love mozzarella and haven’t yet tried burrata, you’ve got to give it a shot. It’s super-amazing good, almost making wonder if something so good isn’t a sin. But in the land of all things crazy-delicious Italian, you will certainly be forgiven.
