Tomatoes and Burrata with Tapenade

Servings: 4 as a starter or 6 as a side

Burrata (a fresh Italian cheese similar to mozzarella but with a creamy center) is a luscious addition to this updated Caprese salad. If you can’t find it, use fresh mozzarella.


  • 12 oz. burrata, cut into 1/2-inch thick slices
  • 3 medium ripe beefsteak tomatoes, cut into 1/2-inch thick slices
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 large basil leaves, torn into pieces
  • 4 tsp. tapenade (store bought or homemade)
  • 1 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil

    We made this salad tonight. It was as delicious as it was beautiful. We used homemade tapenade also from FC. Fantastic dish that we will make often.
