What is a Burrata Caprese?

A Caprese salad is a simple, Italian appetizer - made from mozzarella, tomatoes, basil, salt and pepper, and olive oil.

Instead of the traditional mozzarella used in a Caprese salad, this recipe calls for burrata cheese. It's similar to mozzarella in that it's a soft, Italian cheese from cow or water buffalo milk, but it has soft curds and cream on the inside.

It's a really lovely tasting cheese and sort of melts in with the tomatoes and basil making for an even more delicious Caprese salad!

This looks amazing and soooo perfect for the 100 degree forecasts we have for this week. I found you through a post on FBP where you mentioned your income report and love seeing how you have progressed through your first 6 months (is that right?). I just started my blog (like a week ago) and am still setting so much up that I probably shouldn't even have taken it public but I was itching to start posting content, you know? Anyway, just wanted to say hi and let you know I will probably be lurking because your food looks gorgeous and I'm going to be doing a lot of the same things (photo sharing submissions, etc.) that it looks like you have been doing. :)
