Need a fresh app in a flash?

Try this spin-off of grilled flatbread with lightly seasoned cucumber, creamy burrata, and slivered basil. Forego the grill by picking up a box of amazing pita crackers. In less than five minutes you’ll have a crispy, creamy, bright and fresh appetizer that will wow your guests in no time flat.

For these cucumber burrata bites thinly slice a thin English cucumber.

Toss the cucumber rounds with with two teaspoons of seasoned rice vinegar.

Sliver several fresh basil leaves.

Open a box of Pita Bite Crackers from Trader Joe’s.

Drain a ball of burrata cheese.

Spread a small spoonful of burrata on a pita cracker.

Top with two cucumber rounds.

Sprinkle with a few flakes of sea salt and a grind of fresh pepper. Maldon Sea Salt Flakes are the best.

Top with a few slivers of fresh basil.

Serve to your guests with the cool confidence that you have truly mastered how to entertain with ease!
