Angelini Beet Salad

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Chef Kate

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.

Top Review by Sydney Mike

I enjoyed this salad very much, & although I couldn't find the burata cheese, I did use a high-quality mozzarella! Also cut the recipe in half, then took Nose's suggestion & used a small bit of lemon juice, adding it to some very flavorful fresh-squeezed OJ! All made for a great taste experience! Thanks for the nice recipe! [Made & reviewed while on tour in Italy with Zaar's current World Tour 4]
