A fresh Burrata salad is a thing of beauty – a simple and delicious ode to the Queen of Italian cheeses.
If you’re wondering what burrata is, it’s the creamy decadent sibling to mozzarella with an unrivalled rich and buttery interior.
The unique creamy tangy notes of this prized cheese also offer the perfect balance to sweet peaches, citrusy oranges or an effective way of offsetting the acidity of fresh tomatoes in delicious burrata salads.
Here are some ways of putting a lighter spin on burrata this summer.
