Recipe Notes


Burrata is tricky to cut since the inside is so creamy. For easier cutting, cut into ½-inch slices and gently tug the slices into smaller sections. For the best flavor, let the salad rest for 30 minutes so the tomatoes release juices and the flavors mingle. This salad is best served within a few hours. Leftovers will keep, covered and refrigerated, for up to 3 days.
