For this recipe you will need: basil, tomatoes, burrata, balsamic glaze, extra virgin olive oil, flaky sea salt, & some freshly ground black pepper.

First, you'll want to slice tomatoes about ¼ inch thick. If you're using smaller tomatoes, you can slice them in half or quarters.


You can choose to slice burrata, or leave it whole. Keep in mind burrata is runny! If slicing, it helps to scoop the slices and arrange them with a large spoon.


Arrange the burrata and tomato slices on a serving platter. Alternating the slices makes such a pretty presentation.


Top with fresh basil, and a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil and balsamic reduction. Top with flaky salt and freshly ground black pepper.


Balsamic glaze is actually very easy to make yourself. It’s as simple as reducing balsamic vinegar until it reaches a thicker consistency. I have a guide to making homemade balsamic glaze below.


This recipe is a great appetizer for this Spicy Rigatoni Vodka. This spicy vodka sauce is so smooth and ultra creamy with salty bits of crispy pancetta.
