Red White & Burrata Appetizer Board

This post contains collections of products that I recommend (it may contain affiliate links).

If you’re hosting an Independence Day party this year and are in need of a crowd-pleasing appetizer or a unique, patriotic dessert to finish off your celebrations, this festive burrata board is exactly what your barbecue needs. Between the burgers, hot dogs, and potato salad, this fresh, creamy American flag-themed snack is the perfect pop of color to add to your spread. 

Ever since my Ultimate Burrata Board went viral, I’ve been remixing it and combining all kinds of tasty flavors. One thing’s for sure: I couldn’t resist making it into a flag board for the holiday. Given how much you loved the Baked Strawberry and Burrata Crostini, I figured this berry and burrata combo would be a win-win. You can also add prosciutto to the mix (check out my Burrata and Prosciutto Crostini). For other patriotic ideas, try my Build Your Own Hot Dog Board, American Flag Candy Board, and Proud to Brie an American Cheese Board. Happy Fourth of July!

Put It All Together

  • Next add the cherries in a roughly 2-inch wide line at the top of the board and to the right of the square dish. Add two of the burrata balls directly below. Spoon the strawberries onto the board in another 2-inch thick line below the burrata, but this time the fruit should reach both sides of the board. Place the 3 remaining burrata balls on the board below the strawberries. 
  • Add the blackberries to the dish, then decorate them with the cheddar cheese stars. Cut the burrata balls into halves, then pull them apart using a fork until the cheese covers the spaces in the board. Add the raspberries on top of the strawberries, then top the burrata with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Enjoy!
