Easy Grilled Vegetable Burrata Salad
Nice weather calls for cookouts with loved ones and delicious meals. Now, no cookout feels right if the host is going crazy working away and everyone else is enjoying themselves, so that’s why an easy appetizer like this is perfect to make! It’s a crowd pleaser and perfect to make ahead of the party. You also don’t need a grill to make this. I love grilling because it’s outdoors and feels so social if friends are over, but you can absolutely roast these vegetables instead of grilling them. You could also cook them on a grill pan!
Another reason this is a hit is because this recipe gives restaurant quality flare. I’ve been to several restaurants where they have a burrata appetizer with an assortment of veggies or fruits. This one is different and something guests probably aren’t expecting at a home cookout! The fennel and onion because sweet, charred and tender on the grill and it’s truly the most delicious combination with the creamy, tangy burrata. Pair it with sweet cherry tomatoes, balsamic glaze and salty capers and you have a flavorful masterpiece.
