Raspberry Burrata Toasts

Remember how I mentioned my cool work trip to Monterey? Well, it involved frolicking around organic berry fields with some of my media friends - fun right?? Part of the day involved picking raspberries, which we got to bring home with us. After eating a ton on their own, I decided to have a little fun and made a festive light lunch for Luke and I. These would be an awesome party snack too. Enjoy!

Raspberry Burrata Toasts

1 cup fresh raspberries
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
Six slices crusty bread
Olive oil, for drizzling
3 ounces burrata cheese (a fresh goat cheese or mozzarella would be nice here too)
Salt and pepper to taste
1 small bunch basil leaves, chopped

Place raspberries in a bowl and mash slightly with the back of a fork. Pour balsamic vinegar over and let marinate 5-10 minutes. Lay out bread and drizzle lightly with olive oil. Broil until toasted to your desired crispness.

Spread burrata over the toasts, then top with the raspberry mixture. Sprinkle lightly with salt, pepper and basil. Enjoy while hot!

Aw, thanks Kristi! This one was definitely a winner. It's always tough for me to cook with berries - I just want to eat them all fresh.
