Burrata Fresco!

For some reason when there's blue skies and the sun is shining I get a real itch for some burrata! It may be a Pavlovian response because it always makes the PERFECT al fresco snack which we enjoy on our big balcony while overlooking the sun setting on good old London Town. I almost always serve it with the usual tomatoes and basil but this time I wanted to try something a little different.

I'd had burrata at a restaurant where they served it with a roasted red pepper and tomato gazpacho which actually gave me the idea to break out of the norm. I LOVE a good pico de gallo so thought maybe that could go well with the ultra creaminess of burrata and man oh man was I right! And I think this version suits a sunny balcony afternoon even better!

Quick easy recipe:

Serves 2-4

3-4 tomatoes, preferably multi colored, chopped
1/2 red onion, minced
Hanful cilantro(coriander), chopped
4 radishes, chopped or sliced
1 avocado, diced
Juice of two limes
S&P to taste

1 burrata ball

Thinly sliced and toasted sourdough or wholegrain tortilla chips

1.) Toss together first 7 ingredients in a large bowl. Make a well in the middle and place the burrata in the center.

2.) Use a slotted spoon to scoop burrata onto the toast or tortilla chips with lots of the pico de gallo on top and enjoy!

*if you like heat feel free to add a minced jalapeƱo!
