SUMMER DELIGHT - BURRATA & WALNUTS

We love experimenting with our organic walnuts. It happens more than we probably realize because we pretty much throw them into anything we make. Sometimes, we come across a combination which is so out of this world, it has to be shared!

We could eat burrata mozzarella every day. A little balsamic vinegar with Himalayan sea salt and we're a happy campers. If you don't know what burrata is, it's your lucky day. Burrata means "buttered" in Italian and you could think of this cheese as having the texture equivalent to a lava cake. Round in shape, slightly firm on the outside, creamy and oozy in the middle. Who doesn't like oozy cheese?

A few weeks ago, we decided to add a nectarine to our usual mock up. That nectarine was staring us down and on the verge of turning. This combo was divine. Today, we added our raw walnuts and we'll happily admit, a semi freak out happened in our kitchen. Why we didn't think of adding walnuts before is beyond us. If you're looking for a quick (less than 5 min), easy, and incredibly tasting treat...THIS IS IT!

INGREDIENTS: serves one

  • 1 ball of burrata mozzarella
  • 1 small nectarine, cut into chunks or sliced (if you have larger fruit, 1/2 per person will do)
  • 2 tbsp of balsamic vinegar (or more, if you're like us)
  • Small handful of broken/chopped CORKY'S NUTS organic walnuts
  • Himalayan sea salt (to taste)

DIRECTIONS:

You can arrange this really any which way you'd like. We placed the nectarine chunks at the bottom, then burrata, broke up the walnuts in our hands and sprinkled on top/around. Finish it off with a drizzle of the balsamic vinegar add a little Himalayan sea salt to give it a salty sweet flavor. It's really up to you and we invite you to change it up a bit depending on the seasonal fruit you have on hand.

Makes for a decadent snack or incredible dessert for you or your guests. Enjoy!
