Remove the portions to be eaten and reseal remaining portions. Use within 1-2 days for best flavor. Burrata is usually served fresh at room temperature.

Goes well with salad, prosciutto crudo, hard crusted bread, fresh tomato with olive oil and cracked black pepper, or pasta. Cut and serve on endive leaves for a fresh tasting appetizer, or create a caprese sandwich with burrata, sliced Roma tomatoes, fresh basil, olive oil, salt and pepper. Serve with fresh grilled vegetables for an antipasto.
