Burrata and Watermelon Join Forces for Fresh Summer Salad
Had enough caprese salad to welcome in spring? Shake it up for summer with burrata, mozzarella's creamier cousin. This recipe pairs the sweet, rich cheese with watermelons, cucumbers, and tomatoes for a refreshing dish that will be welcome at any blistery barbecue.
Burrata is usually served fresh at room temperature and is so versatile that it can be paired with roasted peppers, herbs, cured meats, melon, grapes and light wine. It also goes well with salad, prosciutto, hard-crusted bread, fresh tomato with olive oil and cracked black pepper, or pasta. You can also serve it with fresh grilled vegetables for an antipasto, but I particularly like to create a Caprese sandwich with burrata, sliced Roma tomatoes, fresh basil, olive oil, salt and pepper.
