Tomato Salad with Burrata & Croutons

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 28, 2010 at 6:16pm

I know, I know.  Another tomato salad.  But bear with me for a minute, because of one special ingredient…burrata cheese.  It’s fresh mozzarella, but with a creamier, tangier twist.  I bought it at Whole Foods, in the cheese section, and haven’t looked back.  Burrata is completely incredible with garden fresh tomatoes, even more so than traditional fresh mozzarella, because of its loose, creamy-dreamy texture.

Scatter pieces over juicy sliced tomatoes.  Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle generously with salt and pepper, add crispy olive-oil fried croutons.

Then finish with plenty of fresh basil. (Unless Japanese beetles have decimated your basil plant.  In that case, use other fresh herbs and it will still be fabulous.)

Our dog Louis learned how to jump into the pool today.  Witnessing his pure joy is almost as delicious as tomato salad.
