Burrata Tomato Salad

Jump to Recipe

I gave the traditional Caprese salad a little facelift with some Burrata and I will never be the same! Burrata Tomato Salad… it’s basically the best thing on earth.

Here’s the plan for the rest of the summer… lots of fresh farmers market produce with a little bit of burrata. It’s called BALANCE people. That’s my favorite way to do it and it’s perfect for this time of year when the tomatoes and basil are going crazy at the farmers markets.

This past weekend I went to my favorite farmers market (Hollywood) and bought an extraordinary amount of tomatoes! Heirlooms, cherry tomatoes, sun golds etc and a bushel of basil. I also stocked up on peaches and nectarines but we’ll save those for another day. After returning home I promptly made a big batch of basil vinaigrette and then just assembled a little tomato salad with croutons, burrata and a healthy dose of the vinaigrette for lunch. This Burrata Tomato Salad is simple and perfect and makes you feel like you’re in Italy when you’re not πŸ™‚

    Just made this salad. I’m was using it as a main course and I’m a vegetarian so I threw in a handful of cannellini beans. Delicious! The basil vinaigrette is so good I wanted to lick the bowl clean!

    This will be a regular when having guests. It can be made ahead and then just add croutons and dressing. The second time I made it I added some avocado, beets and cucumber and it was a meal in itself.

    It was delicious and refreshing! So easy to put together. And the croutons? AMAZING! I will never buy croutons in a box ever again after making these! Thanks Gaby!
