Going with a not so traditional side salad slash appetizer for Thanksgiving this year: tomato pomegranate burrata salad!
In my opinion, no fancy multi course feast is complete with the decadent, creamy, deliciousness that is burrata cheese. It immediately ups the ante to any dinner and I'm obsessed. For this recipe, I wanted a flexible dish that could work as both side salad or an appetizer.
Check it: if you add more greens and a little balsamic dressing, you've got a full salad. Toast up some baguette slices (as pictured) and it's a rich, flavorful appetizer.
Also, I wanted to jazz up the colors at my Thanksgiving table and what better way than with bright, juicy heirloom cherry tomatoes and ruby red pomegranate arils? Plus it takes literally 5 minutes to make, the perfect appetizer to keep your guests satisfied before that roasted turkey is ready for carving.
