Watermelon with Burrata and Frisse

Burrata is a ball of mozzarella like cheese filled with cream and more cheese which oozes out when cut into. It comes in a plastic tub packed in brine. Look for it at Trader Joe's and Whole Foods. The creamy Burrata and the crisp juicy watermelon are a match made in heaven.
