Burrata with Brown Butter, Lemon, and Cherries
Burrata with brown butter, lemon, and cherries is a stunning appetizer that celebrates peak summer cherry season! It only takes 10 minutes to make and is perfect for summer entertaining.
Yield: 4 servings
  • 3 cups (11 oz) whole fresh cherries
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • ¼ tsp finely grated lemon zest
  • 8 oz burrata, at room temperature
  • thinly sliced basil
  • flaky sea salt, for serving
  • balsamic syrup or good balsamic vinegar, for serving
  • crusty bread, for serving
  1. Pit the cherries, cut them in half, and then toss them in a bowl with the balsamic vinegar. Allow to rest while you prepare the brown butter.
  2. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Allow to cook until it starts to brown and smell nutty, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and immediately stir in the lemon zest. Set aside.
  3. To serve, place the burrata in the center of a serving dish, cutting it open if desired. Spoon the cherries over and around it. Drizzle with the brown butter. Top with the basil, flaky sea salt, and balsamic syrup, to taste.
  4. Serve with bread.
