Burrata Caprese Salad

Put a new spin on this summer staple by using burrata cheese instead of mozzarella. Burrata means “buttered” and has a creamier, sweeter taste. The white balsamic vinegar glaze has a sweeter undertone and is thicker than a typical balsamic vinegar. This fresh take on the classic Italian salad will have you saying “Amore!”
