Ingredients

6 leeks
1 French shallot, finely chopped
3 tbsp (45 mL) white wine vinegar
1/4 cup (60 mL) olive oil
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1 Pack (250 g) Canadian Burrata
Fresh basil, to taste

Preparation

Remove the dark green sections and root ends of leeks. Cut open the white sections lengthwise and rinse well.

In a large skillet or saucepan, cook leeks in salted boiling water, covered, for 5 min. Drain and cover leeks with cold water to cool them quickly. Drain again.

In a jar, mix shallot with vinegar, oil, salt and pepper.

Arrange leeks on a serving plate and drizzle with dressing. Place Burrata on top of leeks and gently tear open to expose the creamy centre.

Garnish with basil and serve at room temperature.

Note: You can also make the leeks ahead of time and let them marinate in the dressing.

Tips

Cheese culture: Every Burrata is uniquely perfect: it’s a Mozzarella cheese, stretched by hand, around a centre of curd and unctuous cream. If you’ve never tasted one, you’re in for a treat.

Cheese alternatives: Canadian Bocconcini, Fresh Mozzarella.
