What’s better than a delicious hunk of burrata over, well, pretty much anything? Not much.
If you’re not sure what burrata is, head to your local deli, or even grocery store, and ask about it. It’s creamy and delicious and perfect, even on its own.
You can tailor this salad to your taste, adding whatever you have on hand or anything you like. This is a great main dish for those who observe Lent, if you omit the prosciutto. And yes, I said main dish…it’s that satisfying!
