This is the quintessential summer salad. The sweet balsamic vinegar reduction mixed with the rich Burrata and creates a heavenly sauce that pairs perfectly with the sweet, tart cherries and the vibrant cherry tomatoes. I like to use Bing cherries but rainier cherries work, too.

INGREDIENTS

• 3/4 cup balsamic vinegar
• 8 ounces Burrata cheese
• 1 pound fresh, sweet cherries, pitted about 3 cups
• 1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes, cut in half
• 1/3 cup fresh basil leaves
• 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

INSTRUCTIONS

1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, bring the balsamic vinegar to a simmer.
2. Simmer uncovered for 12-15 minutes or until the vinegar is thick and reduced to about 1/4 cup.
3. Rinse the Burrata and pat dry.
4. Break up and spread the cheese over one side of a medium sized-platter.
5. Arrange the cherries and tomatoes to the left and around the cheese.
6. Drizzle with the reduction and olive oil.
7. Sprinkle with kosher sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.

NOTES

This makes a beautiful presentation for brunch.
Happy Eating!
