Heirloom Tomato Burrata Caprese Salad

Summer gets me super pumped for sweet and juicy tomatoes. When I walked into my food story and saw beautiful multi-colored heirloom tomatoes, I couldn’t pass them up. 

Oh, and burrata, people, burrata. Burrata is one of those magical food items that get people excited whenever they hear the word. Plus, it’s fun to say. Go ahead, say it out loud. Burrata. 

If you are digging summer salads as much as I am, you must try this kale and avocado salad, this chopped Thai salad, or this summer stone fruit salad, this summer orange chicken salad. OMG soo good!!

Heirloom Tomato Burrata Caprese Salad

Burrata is a really creamy and delicious semi-soft Italian cheese that’s made of part Mozzarella (the outer shell) and part something else that gives the inside a soft, creamy texture. That something else? Stracciatella and cream. Truth is, I totally googled that. Have no idea what it means, but thought I would include it for those of you that cared and need to know. Burrata. It’s fun to eat. 

If you’re in a pinch and need to throw together a quick app or side for that potluck. Or, if you just want a light and juicy summer meal, this Heirloom Tomato Burrata Caprese Salad is a million percent perfect for you. Let make it!

Slice the tomatoes into wedges and place in your bowl. Nuzzle the burrata into the center of the bowl. Add the slices avocado around the edges, in between groups of tomatoes. Drizzle with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and chopped basil. Easiest peasiest!
