The best of creamy cheeses!

Burrata is a delicious cheese however way you have/serve it.

It can be served as a delicious appetiser dressed lightly with olive oil, as is or next to some baby rocca, basil or watercress… or it can be had in a salad mixing a variety of heirloom tomatoes, with or without rocca leaves or any leaves. Some like to add olives, some dress with just olive oil a bit of salt and black pepper, some add aged balsamic vinegar and some do not like to interrupt the beautiful flavour of Burrata at all. Really whatever you do with this cheese it is just fantastic!

With that said, do have the burrata alone, uninterrupted, because it is so delicious. A piece of bread, some olive oil and your vino, and you have the most delicious munchies for a sundowner outdoors or by the sea… On days when you are in the salad mood, try the salad here.¬†Very simple, easy and super fast to prepare, yet absolutely Divine!

Serve alongside very thin slices of toasted olive oil dressed baguette.

Ingredients

  • 1 large plain Burrata
  • Baby Rocket leaves or any leaves
  • black olives, pitted and halved (optional)
  • Assorted Heirloom tomatoes, sliced
  • Sun-dried tomato (optional)
  • 1-2 tbsp DS Premium Organic Extra Virgin Olive oil
  • DS Pink Himalayan Salt to taste
  • A pinch of freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1 tbsp basil pesto, mixed with 1 tbsp DS Olive Oil (optional for garnish and dressing)

Place the leaves at the side/ bottom of your serving plate.

Top with the burrata and tomatoes (or assemble them sideways as in the picture). Add the olives and sun-dried tomatoes if using…

Dress all with olive oil and a sprinkling of salt and black pepper or with the pesto mixture if preferred.

You can even dress with aged balsamic vinegar if desired.

Try the different dressings and serve it differently every time.

You can always slightly roast the heirloom tomatoes, dressed with olive oil and seasoned with salt. Either to be served with the salad above, or you can change the experience into a snack.

To do this, simply place some roasted tomatoes, alongside some sun-dried tomatoes on the serving plate. Then place the pesto dressing in a small dipping bowl on the same plate. Then place the burrata on the plate alongside some toasted bread slices. Leave it up to your guests to snack as they please.

This is a very good way to add variety to your cheese platter.
