Burrata and tomato salad
Burrata is an amazing Italian cheese. It's essentially a soft cheese with a mild flavor wrapped in a skin of fresh mozzarella. It's delicious with crostini.
8 oz burrata
4 medium tomatoes
1/3 cup basil leaves
2 cloves garlic
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp balsamic reduction
Dice the tomatoes finely and salt. Place in a colander and allow to drain for 30 minutes. Spread out onto a paper towel to finish draining.
Mince the garlic and mix with the olive oil. Toss with the balsamic reduction and the tomatoes. Mix in the julienned basil.
Place the burrata onto two plates. Surround with tomato salad. Sprinkle with lemon pepper and serve with crostini. Delicious!
