Ingredients







Cooking Instructions

1

At least 1 hour before serving, layer tomato slices on large platter. If you need to make them more than 1 layer high, sprinkle with kosher salt before adding second layer.


2

Drizzle generously with olive oil.


3

Allow tomatoes to macerate in salt and oil; they will shed their juices, making a soppable, delicious broth.


4

Just before serving, roll basil leaves and slice thinly (chiffonade); shower tomatoes with shredded basil.


5

Plop burrata atop tomatoes; use a paring knife to cut cheese open so insides begin to ooze onto tomatoes. Serve with forks, small knives and crusty bread; encourage your guests to mix burrata and tomatoes, and soak up the juices straight from the platter.


6

Pairing notes: Upgrade the classic caprese salad with this cream-filled mozzarella-like burrata. Serve this plate communally so everyone can dig in together.
