Serving Size: Serves 6-8 Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 Cups Fresh Basil Leaves (packed tightly - about 2oz)
  • 1/3 Cup Spring Onions (or shallots)
  • 1 Garlic Clove
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1 Tablespoon Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 Cup Olive Oil
  • 3 lbs Heirloom Tomatoes (all colors/sizes cut into bite sized pieces)
  • 1 1/2 lbs Burrata (about 6 balls, cut in half)
Directions
  • For the vinaigrette: in a blender add your basil, spring onion, garlic clove, red pepper flakes, red wine vinegar and salt. While the blender is on, slowly pour your olive oil in until the mixture is smooth and emulsified. Taste the vinaigrette and season with more salt and black pepper, if needed.
  • To assemble the salad, place your cut up tomatoes in a large bowl, add your dressing a little at a time until the tomatoes are coated nicely with dressing (depending on how much dressing you like, you may have some leftover.)
  • Place the tomatoes and dressing on a large platter or in a large salad bowl. Top the tomatoes with fresh burrata cheese - sprinkle with some salt and fresh black pepper. Serve cold or room temperature.
