Tomato, Beet and Burrata Salad

Tomato, Beet and Burrata Salad

Okay, so I have been seeing people post about spirit animals for the last couple of weeks. Personally, I have no idea what my spirit animal would be. I draw a blank even thinking about the topic. But if a meal could be a spirit animal, I hit the nail on the head. Seriously, this salad is light yet filling, complete with savory and sweet, and who can resist creamy burrata cheese? Am I right or am I right? It’s got all my favorite Italian inspired elements – cheese and pesto – plus, a sweet surprise with the beets and balsamic. I could probably eat this salad every single day and not get sick of it. Although, I’m sure my waist line wouldn’t appreciate a daily dose of burrata, my taste buds certainly would ;]
