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 www.whatsgabycooking.com (@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.

Instructions
 

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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. This is my kind of summer meal. Now I will just add a nice slice of homemade bread, and I will be in heaven!!

  4. 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!!!

  5. 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!

  6. I was thinking add fresh Basil, spread over garlic bread and broil till the cheese melts and get slightly toasty.

  7. 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 🙂

  8. 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.

  9. 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?

    1. it’s thicker because of the cheese!! and yes, always store in the fridge for up to 5 days!

  10. 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!

  11. 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?

  12. 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!

  13. 5 stars
    Made this to spice our usual side-dish game, and it was DELICIOUS! Definitely keeping it in our rotation!

  14. 5 stars
    This is a refreshing summer salad! Goes well with fish. The leftover vinaigrette keeps well for another salad later in the week.
