Burrata Salad with Blood Orange, Pistachio and Pomegranate

I had planned to post this tasty salad a couple of months ago but something came up on posting day so it was held back. And then I saw today that there is a Fantastical Food Fight that I forgot about- and how convenient to have this tucked away right when I  am seeing blood oranges available at the market still,  as well as being perfect for the theme of #Salads?

I  love salads such as this which actually are big enough to serve as a meal for me. I love cheese!

The wonderful part is that I can toss it together in just a few minutes as long as I have the ingredients on hand. Burrata as a cheese does best when it is as fresh as possible (so find a deli or cheese shop that makes theirs up fresh daily).

Burrata is similar to fresh mozz but different- the outside of it is actually the mozz while inside is stracciatella di bufata cheese and cream, which makes it wonderfully soft,  rich and buttery.  I’ve had the stracciatella before by itself and it sort of reminds me of mascarpone- very spreadable. If you procure it, try it on a slice of freshly baked sourdough. That is just heaven.
