It’s official.

I love Burrata.

You may remember that I was underwhelmed the first time I tried it in this recipe. A year later (in this post), I admitted that Burrata was growing on me.

Well, it has been another year and I do not think I will ever let so much time go past without a burrata fix.

The creamy center of the cheese, which had initially put me off, now strikes me as a most divine creation. Maybe the cheese makers have perfected their craft here, but burrata is palate pleasing to the max.

So, now you know I love burrata. Let me also profess my love for this salad.

Oh my! What a bunch of tantalizing flavors and textures. The nectarines are exquisite with their ripe sweetness given the pickle treatment. Peppery greens, cool mint and the dreamy, creamy burrata round things out. Fantastic.

‘Beth’ was (is) my favorite Kiss song, because I am a sap at heart.

Check out The Icemans Kiss on Soundcloud, where you can get the music.

Cheers!
