Heirloom Tomato Caprese Salad
This is easily the first item you find in any Italian restaurant around the world. A classic Summer appetizer because of it simplicity, delicate flavors and seasonal ingredients, I prepare our version of caprese salad with a rainbow of heirloom tomatoes and Burrata cheese as opposed to mozzarella. The Burrata is a little creamier and adds a nice contrast to the tang of the balsalmic infused olive oil I like to dress it with. Also great when served between fresh, crispy bread for a traditional caprese sandwich.
Prep Time: 5 mins/ Serves: 4-6
Slice the tomatoes into ½ inch thick slices. Generously season
Arrange the tomato slices on a platter, overlapping slightly. Add the burrata on top and garnish with torn basil leaves. Drizzle with olive oil and season again with salt and pepper.
