Burrata with Figs & Basil

To be fair, I have two new favs at Whole Foods.  (See my post below about La Quercia brand of prosciutto.)  Whole Foods now carries Burrata --so exciting!  Burrata is mozzarella that is filled with cream and mozzarella curds.  It is incredibly smooth and creamy, absolutely delicious.  I couldn't resist the organic brown turkish figs from California.  Just slice your figs in half, add a dollop of cheese, a basil leaf, maybe a little salt & pepper and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar (also olive oil if you like).  Of course, to really make this dish perfect one would need to have a little prosciutto to serve alongside.  So wonderful!
