Who doesn't love creamy, dreamy Burrata? We opted to tweak the traditional way of serving it by using our yummy Sweet 100 tomatoes from our garden. Because of early Coronavirus lockdown we planted these cherry tomatoes early and already have a huge bounty. Looking forward to enjoying this dish many more times in the next month.It couldn't be easier.
One ball of burrata cheese
2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
2 tbsp toasted pine nuts
1 small clove of garlic, crushed
1 tbsp fresh, chopped basil leaves
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp sherry vinegar
25 year old balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste
In a small mixing bowl, stir together tomatoes, pine nuts, garlic, basil, olive oil and sherry vinegar. Let rest for 10 minutes to combine flavors.
Place Burrata cheese on center of serving dish and score the top. Spoon tomato mix around cheese and drizzle with aged balsamic vinegar. Season with salt and pepper.
Serves 6 as an appetizer or side dish.
