GUYS!! It’s that time of the year! Tomatoes are here and I’m obsessed with this Marinated Tomato and Burrata Salad.
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.
Marinated Tomato and Burrata Salad
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.
Only 19 days!! Yay! As you know, I became a huge fan of burrata after I was introduced to it by you. 🙂 Can’t wait to try this salad.
I love burrata! This looks so good, Gaby! Congrats again…wow 19 days is going to go by quickly.
Yay for the big countdown! It’s going to be so amazing and fun and beautiful. Make sure you enjoy every second of it (and eat the food!)
I can never have enough burrata in my life… no joke. I could consume it each and every day and not be tired of it. Needless to say, I’m all over this recipe.
Yum. I’ve been doing a slightly different version of this (a balsamic vinaigrette, and with fresh mozzarella) all summer. You’re right: the tomatoes are bonkers right now.
This looks amazing! That dressing sounds gorgeous.
I’m always game for an easy recipe that looks this delish! Good luck with the seating charts and wedding prep – try and enjoy!! 🙂
You had be at burrata- obsessed!! Mazel on your wedding!
This is my kind of summer meal. Now I will just add a nice slice of homemade bread, and I will be in heaven!!
This is so fun! Love this idea!
Oh I love burrata with a passion! Good luck with all the last minute details and save some time for decompressing before the big day.
I want to dive into that ocean of goodness!! So yummmy!
My mouth is watering!
How exciting Gaby (although I remember how hard the seating arrangements were)! Love all the flavors in this salad – gorgeous!
Yum. I have to make this. Fortunately, I need to go to the market so perfect timing to pick-up some ripe organic tomatoes.
Boo to seating charts but yay to the wedding countdown!
So fresh and summery! Love it
WOOT!!! How exciting!! So, so, so VERY happy for you Gaby!!! Cannot wait to see the photos and hear all about the BIG DAY!! This salad is such a great example of why I love summer foods – no muss, no fuss, just amazing taste!!!
There is no better combination, but you’ve totally inspired me to try marinating my tomatoes before mixing them with burrata.YUM!
Do you LOVE burrata? I don’t blame you, it’s so yummy and creamy…mmm. This salad looks amazing, I could eat it for days with just a good piece of bread!
A. I could live off Burrata, prosciutto, and grilled sour dough for the rest of my days…
B. I’m in the middle of finalizing my guest list. With a few years experience doing it for others, I figured it would be soooo easy. Holy heck, having to cut it down has been the hardest thing on the planet!! Never again!
gorgeous and so easy!!
I love meals like this! Your wedding is coming so close! Good luck 🙂
I was thinking add fresh Basil, spread over garlic bread and broil till the cheese melts and get slightly toasty.
Wow! This looks so delicious, Gaby! You never cease to amaze me…what a wonderful idea for a tasty salad! Thanks for sharing!
Hello Summer! I am going to eat my weight in tomatoes and this salad is just the thing!
This recipe appeared in my inbox while I was in the grocery store yesterday and I quickly scooped up everything I needed. Hubby loved it, especially the burrata! Thanks 🙂
That salad is drop-dead bee-you-ti-ful, like summer on a plate! I love tomato salads with ricotta and a good slab of bread, but burrata is winning me over.
This looks amazing! I’m making it this weekend.
Hi! I just made the vinaigrette and was just wondering, but is it supposed to be of a mayonnaise consistency ? and when you say save the rest for future use, I assume in the refrigerator? and for how long in the fridge will it last?
it’s thicker because of the cheese!! and yes, always store in the fridge for up to 5 days!
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!
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?
fresh mozzarella would work!!
So excited for all these fresh salads!! The vinaigrette is so delicious on everything!
So good, a meal in itself. I added homemade croutons to the bottom of my dish and it was dinner.
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
it’s an Italian cow milk cheese made from mozzarella and cream! If you can’t find it, fresh mozzarella is a great substitute!
On it, this is going to be fab, even with Jackson Hole tomatoes!!
Made this to spice our usual side-dish game, and it was DELICIOUS! Definitely keeping it in our rotation!
This is a refreshing summer salad! Goes well with fish. The leftover vinaigrette keeps well for another salad later in the week.
this is the best summer recipe! soo delicious!
