Burrata with Minty Pea Pesto Bruschetta

Creamy Burrata with Minty Pea Pesto is a melange of textures, flavors and colors. Once you cut into the creamy interior of the cheese, you’ll be mesmerized.

While dining out on Boston’s Atlantic Wharf, we recently sampled a cool and creamy burrata appetizer and were instantly inspired to feature the delectable cheese. For anyone unfamiliar with burrata, it’s a mild, buffalo milk cheese from Puglia, similar to the ever popular fresh mozzarella but filled with cream. It means “buttered” in Italian which is only appropriate when you cut into the outer shell to reveal a creamy, oozy interior.

While in Boston, we enjoyed balls of burrata with a chilled pea puree, and opted to merge these ingredients into a burrata, pea and mint pesto bruschetta. The cascading cheese spread atop toasted baguette slices is the perfect alfresco appetizer. The creamy pool swirls with the vibrant green pesto and the pea polka dots just dance off the platter.
