Here is a recipe for Tomato and Burrata Salad, an enhanced version of the famous Italian caprese salad. To pimp up this tomato salad, I chose a mix of yellow, green, red and cherry tomatoes. Burrata, which is creamier and finer than mozzarella, makes this salad simple yet elegant.

Choosing your ingredients

This tomato and burrata salad does not require many ingredients, however, it is important to choose them well for maximum flavor.

  • Tomatoes: I chose a mix of tomatoes to combine different tastes: yellow, green, black, ox heart and multicolored cherry tomatoes. Yellow and cherry tomatoes are relatively sweet and black and green tomatoes are more acidic. Plus, I think this mix looks great on the plate!
  • Burrata: The burrata is really the highlight of this recipe! I recommend a burrata made with buffalo milk and of the best quality possible. It should be creamy inside and white like milk.
  • Olive oil: I recommend extra virgin olive oil. Here again, I recommend a good quality oil because the burrata will really bring out the taste of the olive oil and enhance it.
  • Flower of salt: To season tomatoes, flower of salt is ideal. This is the most noble part of salt production, the one that is harvested on the surface of the salt marshes.
  • Balsamic vinegar of Modena: The balsamic vinegar of Modena is a high quality balsamic vinegar with a syrupy texture. It is very intense in flavor, so you don’t need to use a lot of it to enhance the taste of the tomatoes.

How to remove the stem from a tomato?

Did you know that there is a tool to easily remove the stem from a tomato as well as the hard part of the tomato? The kitchen tool producer Triangle that I work with regularly offers a tomato and fruit huller. It’s a great tool that I use all the time in the summer!
