Cucumber, Tomato + Burrata Summer Salad // from clive

Summer is the season where I love to go to the farmer’s market, buy whatever’s in-season, and get creative to turn it into something amazing. I’m of the belief that peak summer produce needs very little distractions — no heavy dressings, maybe just a sprinkle of flake salt, squeeze of lemon, and a drizzle of amazing olive oil. I love to eat market-fresh, simple salads this time of year, and this Cucumber, Tomato + Burrata Summer Salad is a favorite I’ve made recently. The word “recipe” even seems a bit too formal for here, because it’s really about seeing what’s available, and learning what you like to pair together. When it comes to super in-season ingredients, mostly anything goes!

Summer is one of the best times of the year to entertain.
