GUYS!! It's that time of the year! Tomatoes are here and I'm obsessed with this Marinated Tomato and Burrata Salad.

Marinated Tomato and Burrata Salad from (@whatsgabycooking)


We've been hitting up the local farm in Malibu weekly to stock up on produce and the tomato situation is out of control these days! This time of year is my favorite because produce is at the peak of season and all of my recipes are super easy and feature incredible produce that doesn't need a lot of work. Things that shine on their own. Tomatoes. Peaches. Peas. I need it all in my life!  Dinners are going to be pretty laid back and easy these next few months. Like super easy. This Marinated Tomato and Burrata Salad is pretty much my latest obsession. It requires a vinaigrette that I make weekly and just keep on hand, a boat load of tomatoes and the best cheese on earth... Burrata.

It's the perfect summer salad, especially because you can find the most amazing and flavorful tomatoes at the farmers market these days. Seriously, if you go to the farmers market for one thing, it's gotta be the tomatoes. They are infinitely better and brighter than a few months ago! And now is the time to eat ALL OF THEM.

So, without further ado, here's the best salad on earth with my fav vinaigrette. With the best cheese ever created.

Total Time 15 minutes
Course Side Dish, Salad

Servings 6 people


For the Vinaigrette

  • 2 teaspoons Garlic Minced
  • 2 teaspoons Shallots Minced
  • 2 teaspoons Dried Oregano
  • 2 teaspoons Dried Parsley
  • ½ teaspoons Freshly Cracked Black Pepper
  • ½ teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • ¼ cups Red Wine Vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons Finely Shredded Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

For the Salad

  • 4 cups heirloom tomatoes halved (cherry tomatoes and larger tomatoes)
  • 8 oz burrata cheese torn into large bite sized pieces
  • Kosher salt and pepper to taste


For the Vinaigrette

  • Combine all the ingredients in a food processor except the olive oil and whirl together for 1-2 minutes until everything is finely chopped. While the food processor is still running, stream in the olive oil until fully incorporated. Transfer the vinaigrette to a air tight container and set aside until ready to use.

For the salad

  • In a large bowl, combine the cherry tomatoes and ½ of the vinaigrette and toss to combine. Save the remaining vinaigrette for future use. Taste and season with salt and pepper as needed. Let the mixture sit for 20 minutes and then serve at room temperature with burrata on top.


I highly recommend seeking out the best tomatoes at the farmer's market to make this salad. You won't regret it!

  1. 5 stars
    This is delicious - I’ve made it a couple times. It’s like an elevated version of a caprese salad.

  2. 5 stars
    This is a refreshing summer salad! Goes well with fish. The leftover vinaigrette keeps well for another salad later in the week.

  3. 5 stars
    Made this to spice our usual side-dish game, and it was DELICIOUS! Definitely keeping it in our rotation!

  4. What is Burrata cheese? I’ve heard of it, but I haven’t seen it sold anywhere. Maybe a specialty cheese shop??
    Also, I saw you on cbs this morning

    1. it's an Italian cow milk cheese made from mozzarella and cream! If you can't find it, fresh mozzarella is a great substitute!

  5. What is burrata cheese? I can’t find it in my local grocery stores ( I live in a small town of about 20,000. What would be a good substitute?

  6. This was so delicious and easy! I used my mortar and pestle instead of the food processor. It tasted great!! Thanks for another amazing recipe!
