Equipment

  • cutting board
  • sharp knife

Ingredients
  

  • 8 ounces fresh burrata usually sold as two 4 oz balls
  • 1 pound fresh tomatoes about 2-3 medium-large sized tomatoes
  • fresh basil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic glaze
  • 2 tablespoons good extra virgin olive oil
  • flakey sea salt like Maldon salt
  • freshly ground black pepper

Instructions
 

  • PREP: Slice tomatoes about ¼ inch thick. You can choose to slice burrata, or leave it whole. Chiffonade basil, or leave it whole. Keep in mind burrata is stuffed with cream and mozzarella shreds, so the middle is runny.
  • ASSEMBLE: Arrange the tomato and burrata slices on a platter. Top with fresh basil, and a drizzle of olive oil and balsamic glaze. Top with flakey salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Notes

How to store leftovers - Truthfully, this recipe is not great as leftovers. Tomatoes lose their texture in the refrigerator, and it will all become watery. It is best to eat this fresh.
