Burrata Tomato Salad


Total Time:



  When Caprese meets Burrata and becomes a Burrata Tomato Salad, it’s basically the best thing on earth.

I’m currently sitting on a plane home from Germany watching my 4th Harry Potter movie of the day and dreaming of this salad. I need some clean eating in my life and this salad is exactly what I’m craving. Clean eating with a little bit of burrata. 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.

Use the basil to whip up the basil vinaigrette that is near and dear to our hearts and make a triple batch while you’re at it and freeze some extra for when basil isn’t in season.

      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.
