This salad is so good and so easy. A definite crowd pleaser. Burrata is a wonderful soft cheese. It is not fresh Mozzarella, but Burrata is made with a Mozzarella outer "pouch" and filled with a soft, stringy curd and fresh cream. It is truly delicious. Try this salad for your Fourth of July celebration!
1 container burrata cheese
1 or 2 containers baby arugula (depending on how many your are feeding)
4 tomatoes (your favorite kind, but if using plum or roma tomatoes, use 6), cut into bite-sized pieces
Optional additions: pitted kalamata olives; chopped green onions; avocado
Wash tomatoes and arugula. Toss arugula lightly with CGD. Spread arugula on a large platter. Drain Burrata. Rip into pieces and top Arugula. Top Arugula and Burrata with tomatoes. Vigorously shake CGD and drizzle over salad. Top with additional ingredients if desired. Serve and enjoy!!!
Corn & Tomatoes will soon be Abundant - Here's a delicious (and easy) way to take full advantage of the wonderful flavors.
Sauteed Corn, Tomatoes & Onions
This dish is so flavorful and easy to prepare, it may become a regular in your house this summer.
6 ears corn
1 medium white onion, chopped
2 beefsteak tomatoes, cut into bite-sized pieces. Or 4 plum tomatoes cut into bite-sized pieces
About 6 TBSP butter (or more to taste)
Salt & pepper
Shuck the corn & cut the kernels from the cob with a sharp knife. Hold cob upright on a butcher block and cut from top to bottom. Turn & cut until cob is empty.
Melt butter in a large, non-stick frying pan. Once melted, add chopped onion and saute until somewhat soft. About 3-5 minutes. Add corn and stir. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring constantly.. Add chopped tomatoes, mix well. Cook for about 2 minutes, until tomatoes are heated through. Add slat & pepper to taste - I usually add a tsp salt and 2 tsps pepper. Mix well, remove from heat and enjoy!!!
