Can we talk about my love affair with California Burrata cheese, because it’s intense! Given the opportunity, I could take down a pound or two in a matter of minutes. When it comes to self-control, it goes straight out the window when Burrata cheese is involved!
That’s why we’re celebrating today with Spring Pea Crostini with California Burrata!
We’re celebrating for multiple reasons! One, it’s been crazy gorgeous in California these past 2 weeks! Two, tax season is FINALLY behind us (well, it is within 24 hours). Ugh – no one likes that! And lastly, spring parties are starting to spring up (pun totally intended) every way you turn.
This Spring Pea Crostini with California Burrata is most likely going to open your eyes to a whole new world of happiness. It’s layers of toasted bread, pea and mint pesto, California Burrata cheese and finely sliced prosciutto on top. I mean, I can’t even deal with how delicious this is!
