Burrata and Heirloom Tomato Salad

Burrata and Heirloom Tomato Salad

I recently discovered burrata cheese, and have come to really enjoy it! And, since I had some on hand, I was inspired to update my favorite lunch salad after reading this post from TheKitchn earlier today. It was a lovely addition to the salad. I simply swapped out my usual goat feta for one ounce of burrata. I also added a few drops of black truffle oil to my dipping plate which took it to a new level!

Hope everyone had a fabulous holiday weekend. Here’s to a short week!

Quick Snack

Quick Snack

Just wanted to share this yummy, quick snack that I threw together last night. It was so satisfying and tasty I made it again today! Three ingredients. Crackers, cheese and bruschetta! Here’s what I used…

Mary’s Gone Crackers – Herb (Gluten-Free)
1 Laughing Cow Wedge Light Swiss Original
Trader Joe’s Roasted Red Pepper and Artichoke Tapenade

That’s it! Simply assemble and enjoy. You could certainly mix and match different ingredients to satisfy your taste buds. I really enjoyed Trader Joe’s Jarred Tapenade. Their products are surprisingly reasonably priced, and I haven’t been let down yet on flavor. Also, I use 6 – 8 crackers with one Laughing Cow Wedge. This snack easily comes in around 150 calories or less, for those of you counting.

Please share what you come up with!  Also, any ideas on how else to use the tapenade?
