A Great Way to Start a Meal

Here’s a super easy and delicious appetizer to serve during the summer. I made it for my daughter the other evening and we both really enjoyed it.

The taste of really good quality balsamic vinegar with olive oil, hugging the fresh tomatoes and creamy burrata is out of this world… just remember to leave room for dinner 🙂
