Yummy Burrata

20180207_173905

I am in love with Cara Cara oranges.  Its pulp is sweet, seedless not quite the color of a blood orange but darker pulp than a naval orange.  I cut off the rind and cut the segments and scattered them on top of some baby butter lettuce.  I then took a ball of burrata and tore it into pieces and distributed the pieces as well. I sprinkled pomegranate seeds, thin slices of red onion and chunks of deliciously ripe avocado. I found a simple dressing on line:  2tbls of olive oil, 3 tbls of Red wine vinegar, and 2 tsp honey. Season with salt and pepper and pour over the salad and serve. It not only looks beautiful but tastes delicious.

Another easy but delicious appetizer uses burrata as well. I purchase bruschetta from Whole Foods (but if you are in Florida, Publix makes a great one, too) and pesto. In a small serving dish pour the bruschetta on one side and the pesto on the other.  Place a fresh burrata ball on top in the middle. Take a small baguette and slice 1/4″ slices. Brush with olive oil and place under the broiler until toasted. Do the same to the other side if desired.   Spoon  the bruschetta-pesto -burrata mixture onto the toast and Enjoy!! I score the ball for easier dipping)  I make this all the time but keep forgetting to take a picture so one will be coming soon!
