DID YOU KNOW?
When you see the Blue Cow Logo on a product, it means it's made with 100% Canadian quality milk that meets some of the highest standards in the world.
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.
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.
