Caprese Salad is always a crowd pleaser, especially in August when basil flourishes and tomatoes are at their peak, juicy, super-ripe and sweet. Always use a high-quality extra-virgin olive oil and generously salt the tomatoes.
In this salad I have used heirloom tomatoes purchased at a local farmers market and combined them with some just-picked tomatoes from my garden; the addition of Burrata cheese puts this classic summer salad over the top.
Burrata is a fresh Italian cheese made from cow’s milk. The outer shell of the cheese is made from mozzarella but the inner part of the cheese is filled with buttery strings of curd and cream.
