Stacked Tomato and Burrata Salad


Comparing mozzarella and burrata is slightly unfair, as burrata is significantly richer and creamier. It's not like comparing apples and oranges; it's more like apples and supermodels. In fact, burrata means "buttered," which is all you need to know for this tomato and burrata salad.

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil


  1. Place a tomato slice on a plate; season with sea salt and black pepper. Spread burrata cheese over tomato slice and top with torn basil leaves. Drizzle with olive oil. Top with another tomato slice. Repeat cheese and tomato layering process with remaining slices, finishing with a tomato slice.
