Burrata means “buttered” and that name is spot on. Made with mozzarella and filled with sweet cream and curd, this cheese appears to melt when cut down the middle.
This burrata salad is the best when eaten within 48 hours of being made. Seasonal is always best, particularly when you’re talking about sun-ripened tomatoes fresh off the vine from your garden or farmers’ market. If you can’t find organic burrata cheese at your local market, then make this salad with organic mozzarella cheese – it’s just as delicious.
