Ingredients

  • 6 small beets gold and red mix, can purchase pre-roasted to save time
  • 8 oz burrata usually comes as 3 or 4 small balls in water
  • 1 navel orange juiced, ~1/3 cup
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp orange zest

Instructions

  • If you do not have pre-roasted beets, preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Trim each beet and scrub clean with a veggie brush. Brush with a thin layer of olive oil. Wrap each beet in a sheet of aluminum foil, transfer to the middle oven rack, and bake for 45-60 minutes or until tender.
  • Remove the beets from your oven using oven mitts, open each wrapped beet to let the steam come off, and let them cool for a few minutes before peeling off the skin (they can be very hot).
  • While the beets are cooling, prepare the dressing by whisking together the orange juice, balsamic, honey, and olive oil.
  • Peel the beets and slice them into eighths. Arrange them on a serving tray. Remove the burrata from the packaging and add the balls to the tray. Drizzle with the orange balsamic dressing. Finish with a sprinkle fresh orange zest on top, and enjoy! 

Notes

  • Let the burrata sit out at room temp for ~20 minutes before serving.
  • Serve the tray with a cheese fork or knife to help your guests "pop" the burrata cheese to release the creamy filling.
  • No burrata? Sub fresh mozzarella.
  • To save time, roast the beets up to 5 days in advance. You can make the entire dish in advance too, but I recommend waiting to add the dressing until right before you serve it.
  • Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up 2-3 days.
