Units Scale
  • 2 (10 oz.) containers of grape/cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 6 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • Kosher salt
  • fresh cracked pepper

  • 8 oz. burrata cheese
  • 1/4 cup basil pesto, optional
  • homemade crostini


  1. Add tomatoes, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, Italian seasoning, and a couple large pinches of salt and pepper to a bowl.
  2. Mix until well combined.
  3. Let marinate for about 10 minutes or so while you make your crostini.
  4. Stir in julienne cut basil.
  5. Transfer tomatoes to a serving platter.
  6. Gently tear burrata apart into bite-sized pieces and place over the tomatoes.
  7. Drizzle with pesto if desired. Season to taste with salt and serve with crostini!



  • You'll have a bit of leftover juice from the marinated tomatoes. I like to save this and use it for a simple dressing! Add a teaspoon or so of Dijon mustard or mayonnaise, season to taste with salt and pepper, and voila! You've got a delicious, tangy balsamic vinaigrette perfect for any salad! You can also just spoon the marinade juices over the tomatoes when serving for an extra pop of flavor.
  • Don't skip the crostini! This burrata salad tastes best served with crispy, crunchy homemade crostini and the best part is they only take a few minutes to prep. Crispy crostini is the perfect vehicle for marinated tomatoes and creamy burrata cheese.
  • Feel free to add sliced peaches and make this into a tomato peach burrata salad. You could also add pitted cherries or another stone fruit to make it a more fruity salad. Tomatoes are technically a fruit so they pair well with other fruits!
