Heirloom Tomato Salad with Burrata Cheese

Tags: , , ,

Burrata is a ball of fresh mozzarella filled with a mixture of fresh mozzarella pieces and cream, which can resemble a fine-curd cottage cheese but is much more flavorful. This recipe boasts a small ingredient list, but it’s big on flavor! Fresh mozzarella makes an excellent substitution.
