Add a pop of color and flavor to your table with a refreshing recipe for Caprese Salad with Burrata.
Summer sweetness in a bowl. That’s the only way to sum up this simple, fuss-free side dish that magically marries just four ingredients. Count ’em:
- Olive oil
Add some large-flake sea salt (shoutout to my fave, Maldon!) and freshly cracked black pepper, and this classic Caprese Salad with Burrata is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser.
I originally shared this dish on Instagram Stories and added a touch of sweetness courtesy of a thick drizzle of balsamic syrup (homemade or store-bought works). It transforms the ordinary tomato salad into a sweet, savory, creamy, cool Caprese knockout. And it proves that sometimes it’s the minimalist recipes that pack the maximum flavor.
