A Great Way to Start a Meal
Here’s a super easy and delicious appetizer to serve during the summer. I made it for my daughter the other evening and we both really enjoyed it.
The taste of really good quality balsamic vinegar with olive oil, hugging the fresh tomatoes and creamy burrata is out of this world… just remember to leave room for dinner 🙂
Summer Tomatoes with Burrata & Basil
Reliable Recipes/ insidewink.com
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
4 medium beefsteak or heirloom tomatoes, washed and cored
One 4 ounce ball burrata cheese
1 cup of small medley tomatoes
2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
salt and black pepper to taste
12 small basil leaves, torn and whole
Slice the heirloom tomatoes into 1/4-inch slices and arrange them on a large plate, over lapping slightly.
Place the burrata cheese in the center of the tomatoes.
Halve the small tomatoes and scatter them around the plate.
Drizzle the vinegar and remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil over all the tomatoes and season generously with salt and pepper.
Garnish with shredded basil leaves.
