Fresh Pears and Burrata with Pesto

The marriage of juicy pears and creamy cheese is a classic pairing. Opt for burrata if you believe "the creamier the better". Drizzled with DaVinci EVOO for the ultimate starter.

Servings: 6   |    Prep: 5 mins   |    Cook: 0 mins

Ingredients

DaVinci Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice, plus more for brushing
2 (4-ounce) balls burrata cheese, drained
1 6.7 oz jar Sacla Wild Garlic Pesto
3 large pears

Directions

1. Cut the pears lengthwise into four 1/4-inch-thick planks, reserving the bulbous edges for another use.
2. Use a paring knife to cut out the core from the middle slices. Brush the planks on both sides with lemon juice to prevent browning.
3. Tear each burrata ball into 6 chunks and place a piece on each pear.
4. Spoon the pesto on top, drizzle with DaVinci EVOO, and serve immediately.
