Caprese Salad with Burrata

Caprese Salad with Burrata

Add sliced garlic and olive oil to a saucepan. Simmer until the garlic begins to brown slightly, then set aside to cool completely.

Blend together the infused garlic oil and basil leaves until smooth. Use an immersion blender, blender, or food processor.

Slice the tomatoes in various shapes and sizes, then layer on a large platter, overlapping.

Break open the burrata and arrange the pieces in between some of the tomato slices.

Drizzle the garlic basil oil all over the salad.

Top with flaky sea salt, cracked black pepper, and extra basil leaves, then serve.

Burrata caprese salad can be served as a meal, a side, or an appetizer. To make the salad more hearty, serve it with toasted Italian bread or crostini.
