Caprese Salad is one of my favorite Italian starters. In this recipe I replaced the mozzarella cheese with burrata and instead of olive oil I created an herbed oil dressing. Burrata is made from mozzarella and cream, the outer shell is made from mozzarella and the inside contains both mozzarella and cream. The cheese has a rich, buttery flavor and retains its fresh milkiness. Overall, this is a nice combination of the creamy burrata, the strong flavor of the herbs, and the fresh, firm flesh of the tomato. This dish is especially nice during warm summer days, but in my opinion, you can enjoy it all year around.
This salad is a fresh and light summer dish that makes you feel fantastic inside-out on hot days. The combination of the spicy and sour dressing with the salty feta gives it a great twist. Luxembourg has been blessed with true summer weather recently, and we’ve been spending days outside and enjoying barbecues almost every day with lots of fresh veggies and fish or beef. This salad makes a great side dish to any barbecue as well.
The sun is shining and it’s finally getting warmer in the mornings when leaving the house to bring the kids to school. I really need sunshine in my life and our weeks of sunshine in Luxembourg are very limited. Well, every time the glowing planet shows itself we’re out and about. Off course, on those days you don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen preparing food. This salad is a flavor explosion and the perfect quick fresh summer starter. It’s a creamy, crunchy, spicy seafood combination, all in one dish.
