To know me means that you know I have never met a charcuterie board I did not like. When we go out to dinner, that’s what I order so I can pick and have little bites of everything. I also love putting together boards when entertaining or just when I don’t feel like cooking and want to feel fancy. This summer burrata board is so refreshing. Scroll down to see how I put it together.
Summer Burrata Board
Light burrata pairs well with delicious summer flavors like fresh peaches, berries, mint or basil. I whipped up this board one Friday night for cocktail hour for Rick and I.
This summer burrata board make the perfect dish to bring to your summer parties whether as an appetizer or side dish. Let your guests make their own small plates or you can also choose to slice the fruit into smaller pieces and cut the burrata into chunks so that people can assemble as a little salad. Drizzle with a little olive oil and balsamic glaze.
Things that I love to pair with burrata:
peaches or other stone fruit
mint, basil or arugula
crackers or crostini
And here it is as a salad. I topped with some chopped pecans for a little crunch.

This is my spin on the classic and it’s perfect for your summer parties!
1 lime popsicle
1 shot of tequila (I prefer Casa Amigos)
1.) Start by slicing a wedge of lime, running along the edge of your glass and then dip the rim of the glass in salt (or sugar if you prefer).
2.) Fill the glass with ice.
3.) Add to the glass club soda and tequila and wedge of lime.
4.) Unwrap the popsicle and stir into the glass.
These are so simple! Make a bunch and serve poolside to cool off or serve with some fresh guac and tortilla chips!
Layer fruit in a pitcher to make this pretty Rainbow Sangria. This is honestly like the most cheerful beverage and it’s perfect for spring and summer. And it will get you pretty buzzed too! Scroll down for my easy Rainbow Sangria recipe.
1 bottle white wine
1/4 cup Cointreau
1/4 cup brandy
1 can fresca
sliced fruit – strawberries, peaches, pineapple, kiwis, blueberries, grapes
In a pitcher mix together the white wine, Cointreau, brandy and fresca. I will usually prep the step the night before and let it sit in the fridge overnight.
Prior to serving, slice the right and layer in a carafe in the order as follows – grapes, blueberries, kiwis, pineapples, peaches, strawberries.
Pour the white wine mixture into the carafe covering the layered fruit.
This rainbow sangria is so eyecatching and easy to make for those warmer months. Make it for a brunch with girlfriends, or just to have in the fridge to sip on throughout summer. Either way, you will be feeling pretty fine 🙂
This is the most addicting snack and Bunny Bait you will ever try! I recently had a craving for something sweet and whipped this up. The kids came home and their eyes immediately went to the rainbow filled jar. I have a feeling we will be making more!
