There are a few things that I am 100% certain of…
1. Things taste better with salt
2. Having a bit of a tan makes me happy
3. My dad makes the worlds most amazing cookies
4. Yoga pants are the best thing ever invented
5. Burrata should be its own food group
You agree right? I mean, minus the fact you haven’t all had a chance to try my dad’s kitchen sink cookies, but let’s just overlook that for a hot second. The rest of the points are completely valid. And today I’m taking #5 to a whole new level.
Burrata and Stone Fruit Salad!! It would be on the menu for lunch and dinner daily if I didn’t continue to eat all the Burrata before it was time to whip this one up. But I can’t be held accountable for my actions when Burrata is involved. #sorryimnotsorry
It’s the perfect salad to sloooooowly start to say goodbye to summer. Scratch that. I refuse to say goodbye to summer just yet. I will rock my flip flops and short shorts until it starts to rain and I am forced to put on close toed shoes. But until that day comes…. It’s sunglasses, flip flops and Stone Fruit and Burrata Salads all day every day!
