That time of year again

This time of year, we love visiting our local farmer's market on Saturdays and loading up on heirloom tomatoes. They come in such amazing many varieties of color, shape and flavor. Although they're delicious simply sliced up with some salt and pepper, as a cheese lover, one of my absolute favorite ways to enjoy them is with a heaping dollop of burrata cheese with a drizzle of balsamic and olive oil. If you have some arugula or crusty bread, all the better. If you've never had burrata, it looks like a gooey cross between mozzarella and ricotta - it's made from buffalo mozzarella and cream - and tastes like heaven, much more flavorful than regular mozzarella. You can find it in some Italian markets and specialty stores. Image below via jenblossom on flicker.
