Arugula, Tomatoes & Burrata Salad


May 31 2020

When tomatoes are ripe and gorgeous, I am in heaven!  There are a million things that I can think of to do with them...sauces, soups, roasting them, adding to salads, savory galettes, oh so many things!

Usually, though, the simplest is the best.

This salad is so easy, so light and so healthy.  It's delicious and it's pretty (which, of course, really matters).



Start with ripe tomatoes on the vine, roast them until soft and caramelized.  Add to some dressed arugula, top with torn burrata and poof!  Salad is ready!

1 pound small tomatoes, on vine (such as Campari) 4 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, divided 8 cups arugula 2 tsp Kosher salt, divided 1 tbsp lemon juice Freshly ground pepper, to taste 8 ounces burrata cheese Preheat oven to 400°F. Place tomatoes, still on the vine, on a baking sheet. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons olive oil and sprinkle with about 1 teaspoon Kosher salt. Roast tomatoes until they split and start to caramelize, approximately 30-40 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool.

With a knife, cut an x in the top of the burrata and spread it open. Drizzle olive oil on the burrata and sprinkle with Kosher salt & pepper. Enjoy!
