Burrata & Prosciutto Plate

Simple and fancy!

This delicious dish works great for an appetizer, or if you’re feeling fancy, an afternoon snack! Super simple to throw together but so delicious.

Ingredients

Serves 2

  • Package of burrata (usually comes with two pieces)

  • 1/4lb or 1 container of prepackaged proscuitto. Ask for it really thinly sliced if at the deli counter!

  • Fresh basil

  • Olive oil

  • Balsamic vinegar or a balsamic reduction, which you can buy or make by simmering balsamic vinegar until thickened

  • Flaky sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper

Step One: Arrange your proscuitto on the plate. It doesn’t need to be perfect – I like to bend the slices in whatever way I think looks good.
Step Two: Cut your burrata into approximately four pieces per ball. You can also tear them instead for a rustic look! Add these to the plate.
Step Three: Chiffonade your basil: roll a couple of leaves up and then slice thinly with a knife. Put these on the plate as well, ideally on top of the burrata.
Step Four: Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic, then sprinkle on salt and as much pepper as you like.

Make it your own:

  • Mozzarella works great as a substitute for the burrata, but you won’t get the same creaminess.

  • Feel free to try different herbs in place of the basil.

  • While I have only made this with proscuitto, you can try this out with mortadella or salami as well.

How To Eat Locally

Eating local foods has so many benefits. It often leads to eating seasonally, since local farms generally only offer items that are currently in season. It also often means that you’re eating grass-fed, pasture-raised protein as well as organic produce (check with your local farmer – even if they can’t claim that they’re organic as it’s an expensive certification that not all choose to go through, their products may still be pesticide free). You’re also supporting your local community! What’s not to love?

Getaway House Review

I’ve wanted to stay at Getaway for a while. I don’t remember how I stumbled upon these tiny cabins with huge windows looking out over nature scapes, but when my husband and I weren’t really feeling heading into Seattle for a quick trip we’d booked, we canceled and decided to book this instead. We didn’t want the bustle of a city, we wanted nature and solitude, a chance to connect as a family.
