Burrata Tomato Salad

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… clean eating 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 🙂
