Does it get much better than this? A big plate of juicy summer tomatoes with creamy burrata and fresh basil. I could most certainly eat this entire platter in one sitting. Tomatoes are one of the simplest snacks that pack a lot of flavor. Even just a few tomato slices with a little kosher salt and I’m happy!

Making this Burrata Caprese couldn’t be any easier. Here’s what you’ll need:

This caprese salad recipe only requires a few fresh ingredients, but they pack a big punch!

  • Beefsteak tomatoes. Heirloom tomatoes are also a favorite!
  • Compari tomatoes. If you haven’t tried compari tomatoes, now is the time! They are petite and so juicy. Cherry tomatoes could also be used here, however. Any and all tomatoes welcome!
  • Fresh basil leaves.
  • Burrata cheese. Fresh mozzarella could also be used here, however, fresh burrata brings it to another level.
  • Olive oil. Try to use a high quality extra virgin olive oil for drizzling. Trust me, it makes a difference!
  • Garlic. Fresh is always best, however, use what you have!
  • Salt and pepper.
  • Balsamic vinegar. Or balsamic glaze!
