Gimme gimme all the tomatoes and burrata.

Ever since my sister, Jackie, introduced me to tomatoes and burrata cheese (BEST cheese ever!) a few years ago, I’ve been making similar concoctions for my family. I finally decided to recreate one for all of you, because I believe in sharing.

In other words, my recipes are yours.

This is a five minute appetizer. Yup, you read that right! No oven or stove top. Just a few dices, swirls, and tears.

Five ingredients:

  1. cherry tomatoes
  2. burrata cheese
  3. basil
  4. olive oil
  5. balsamic glaze

Plus some salt, pepper, and some thinly sliced bread to serve.

BTW, the bread you see pictured is my Cracked Wheat Bread. I pulled it out of the freezer for this appetizer, but you could use any store bought bread.

Our Texas heat is ON, and the a/c is also ON. One thing about living in the south, summers can be hard. Temperatures in July and August average in the high 90’s and when we hit that or over 100 (which has been happening here too much lately), I’m totally down for less cooking. I could easily eat a smoothie bowl at every meal, but my boys…not so much.

So this app? No cooking required.

Let’s sum up the reasons to love tomatoes and burrata!

  • 5 minute prep
  • no cooking required
  • uses summertime tomatoes…which are the best
  • a great excuse to indulge in the creamiest of cheeses – burrata!
  • an impressive appetizer to bring to parties

If you have home-grown tomatoes, use those. Enjoy!
