Tomato, Burrata & Spinach Salad – Recipe!

Print Friendly

I love tomato season and every year I can’t wait to make my favorite salads with these lusciously sweet fruits.  Yes, tomatoes are fruits, technically, and Caprese Salad, tomato and mozzarella, is probably the most common salad of the summer.

I enjoy the combination of sweetness from the vine ripe tomatoes with a creamier cheese like burrata;  instead of just plain mozzarella.  The center of burrata is loose and delicately melts over the fresh tomatoes like a volcano starting to erupt.

Spinach is another great addition with tomato and burrata because it can handle the weight of freshly sliced tomatoes and cheese.  Also, it offers a slight pungent bite that complements the other ingredients, just a nice addition.  Most of the time, the simplest things always taste the best and this is no exception.

    Hi Gina,

    Jeff (AKA Dad) turned me on to your website. I do a bit of cooking and strive to make it visually appealing. Looks like you have a keen eye for presentation. I have a question. I make Caprese salads but find mozzarella boring. Is the Burrata more flavorful? I’ve used Jarlsberg is few times but it detracts from the presentation. I grow my own tomatoes and Basil. Those market tomatoes around here look great but have zero flavor.

    Thanks for putting this stuff up……Troy
