“This wonderful salad is made with Burrata, a miraculous cheese that is like a ball of mozzarella that is stuffed with mozzarella cream--sort of a mozzarella truffle. is available at several specialty foods stores, and at Whole Foods markets. If you can't find it, use fresh mozzarella. Don't use that rubbery stuff from the supermarket--it won't work in this dish. Adapted from a recipe by chef Gino Angelini at Angelini Osteria.”
