Burrata Caprese with Honey Balsamic Glaze

Is there anything in life better than cheese? One of my favorite cheeses is burrata. Burrata is like mozzarella with its solid shell, but what makes it so special is the center, which is filled with stringy stracciatella di bufala and cream. Burrata, which literally means “buttered,” goes perfectly on crusty bread or on top of a bright, refreshing salad.

One way I enjoy burrata is in a caprese salad. In lieu of classic water mozzarella, I use fresh, creamy burrata, which truly takes the caprese to the next level. To add even more flavor, I drizzle a sweet honey balsamic reduction on top and garnish with fresh basil. This simple salad served with rustic bread is a heavenly appetizer!

1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
4 tablespoons honey
1 4 oz burrata cheese round
3-4 large ripe tomatoes, sliced into rounds
2-3 tablespoon olive oil
Salt, freshly cracked
Pepper, freshly cracked
Fresh basil leaves


Honey Balsamic Reduction
In a small saucepan, cook balsamic vinegar and honey over medium heat. Once the mixture begins to cook and bubble, whisk and reduce to medium-low heat. Allow the mixture to simmer for about 10 minutes until it is reduced. Remove the saucepan from the heat and set aside to cool.

Caprese Salad
While the glaze cools, arrange the tomatoes in a circle and place the burrata in the center. Sprinkle the olive oil, salt, and pepper. Use a spoon to drizzle the glaze over the tomatoes and cheese. Garnish with fresh basil and enjoy!
