Recipe: Burrata with Heirloom Tomatoes & Basil

Tomatoes, basil, and olive oil form a classic flavor combination, offering a balance of acidity, aroma, and richness. The introduction of burrata, with its creamy texture and mild taste, elevates the combination, bringing depth and a smooth finish to a delicious and easy to prepare dish.


- 1 ball of your favourite, fresh burrata cheese

- 2 cups assorted heirloom tomatoes, sliced in different, bite sized shapes

- A handful of fresh basil leaves

- Balsamic vinegar (to taste)

- Extra virgin, McLaren Vale olive oil (to taste)

- Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

- Sliced ciabatta bread


1. Heat a grill pan over medium heat and brush the ciabatta slices with olive oil.

2. Place the ciabatta slices on the grill pan and toast until golden and crispy, with char marks, about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove and set aside.

3. On a serving plate, arrange the sliced heirloom tomatoes.

4. Carefully place the burrata in the center of the tomatoes.

5. Scatter the fresh basil leaves over the tomatoes and burrata.

6. Drizzle the dish with balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil to taste.

7. Season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.

8. Serve the toasted ciabatta alongside the burrata and tomatoes.
