Strawberry Burrata Basil Salad

The local strawberries are everywhere; sweet and juicy. Pair them with fresh summer basil, right out of the garden, and you know I am always on the lookout for dishes where I can use burrata.
A good quality olive oil, fresh ground pepper, and sea salt finish the dish.

Strawberry Burrata Basil Salad
8 ounces strawberries, washed, hulled and halved
4-8 ounce ball of burrata
3 basil leaves, sliced
pinch of sugar
pinch of salt and fresh ground pepper
2 teaspoons reduced balsamic (balsamic syrup)
1-2 teaspoons olive oil
pinch of sea salt

Place the burrata cheese in the middle of a serving bowl.
In another bowl, toss strawberries with basil, a pinch of sugar, a pinch of salt, and fresh ground pepper.
Spoon the strawberries around the burrata cheese. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar over the strawberries.
Top with a drizzle of olive oil and sea salt over cheese.
