Burrata Pomodori | Simple Caprese Salad
Burrata Pomodori or a Simple Caprese Salad. What says summer more than a delicious fresh tomato salad with the most amazing Burrata Cheese. Toast the end of summer with this simple and delicious Burrata Pomodori or Simple Caprese Salad.
A couple of weeks ago, my daughters and I drove to visit my brother and his family in Iowa. Whilst there, they took us out to dinner and his family’s favorite restaurant. He ordered this delicious Caprese Salad for an appetizer and then recreated it at his home a couple nights later when we had exteneded family over for dinner. I will say, his version was much tastier.
My daughters have been begging for me to make Burrata Pomodori since we have been home, so over the weekend, I created our own version of Burrata Pomodori. It did not disaapoint. I made this Burrata Pomodri Summer Salad and then popped in the Life of Pets 2 DVD to watch.
Enjoy a lovely Burrata Pomodori Summer Salad or a Simple Caprese Salad over the weekend and be sure to pick up your very own copy of The Secret Life of Pets DVD, out now. You can enjoy a bit of farm food whilst watching the movie at home with family.
Now, if you have never had Burrata Cheese, I have to school you — it is delicious. I have been using Burrata in place of ordinary mozzarella for the past couple of years because it just tastes better. Trust me on this one, it really does taste better.
If you are not familiar with Burrata, I encourage you to become acquainted with this creamy-filled fresh mozzarella as soon as possible. Burrata is similar to mozzarella, but burrata is a silky-soft sack of creamy mozzarella filled with stracciatella. Basically a burrata ball is strands of mozzarella immersed liberally in rich cream.
Try Burrata Pomodori tonight or this weekend. Be sure to select some fresh picked tomatoes from the farmer’s market or your very own back yard if you are so lucky. Give this delicious Burrata Pomodori recipe a try give before the summer season passes by. Burrata Cheese comes is various sizes as well. Think small, medium and large. I use all sizes and it really depends on my mood. These Burrata Cheese balls are great for Burrata Stuffed Tacos too!
