Fresh Tomato Basil & Burrata Salad
Garden tomatoes are still in season here in Minnesota. They are at the end of their season, but I am still enjoying every last bit of it with the classics like Ultimate BLTs or something a little different like these Fried Goat Cheese & Heirloom Tomato Toasts. You could do like my husband, and just eat the fresh garden tomatoes like an apple all by itself with a little salt and pepper. That isn’t my jam, but I do LOVE them in this Fresh Tomato Basil & Burrata Salad.
For this particular salad, I used some store-bought multi-colored cherry tomatoes, but garden tomatoes or heirloom tomatoes would both be great in this salad. I made this dish for a bachelorette party that I was responsible for the food at. I picked dishes that could be made ahead of time and packed up in a cooler for dinner at a later time. This included some Italian Beef, a cheese plate and a fresh fruit platter with some phallic chocolates. 🙂 You have to throw a little cheesiness into a bachelorette party no matter how hold you are!
I made far too much of this Fresh Tomato Basil & Burrata Salad for the party because I had so many beautiful tomatoes to use up. I enjoyed this for lunch the next few days, because lets be real, tomatoes in balsamic with fresh cheese is ALWAYS a good thing!
- 4 c. chopped tomatoes
- 2 Tbsp. fresh basil, chopped
- 3 Tbsp. olive oil

- ½ tsp. garlic salt
- dash of fresh cracked pepper

- In a large bowl, whisk together the olive oil, balsamic, garlic salt and pepper. Toss the tomatoes and basil in the bowl until they are evenly coated. Top with pieces of the burrata and store refrigerated or serve.
