Heirloom Tomato Salad with Burrata Cheese

Tags: Heirlooms, Julia Rutland, recipe, salad

Burrata is a ball of fresh mozzarella filled with a mixture of fresh mozzarella pieces and cream, which can resemble a fine-curd cottage cheese but is much more flavorful. This recipe boasts a small ingredient list, but it’s big on flavor! Fresh mozzarella makes an excellent substitution.

Yield :  4 servings


Pesto Vinaigrette (makes 1 cup)

  • 2 small garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons toasted pine nuts or walnuts
  • 2 cups lightly packed basil
  • ¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons white balsamic or white wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • ⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil

Heirloom Tomato Salad

  • 2 pounds heirloom tomatoes, cored and cut into wedges
  • 6 cups mixed baby greens
  • 8 ounces fresh burrata or mozzarella cheese, cut into 12 wedges


  • Combine vinaigrette ingredients in a food processor; process until smooth.
  • Arrange tomatoes over greens on a serving platter or 4 salad plates. Top with burrata and sprinkle with pine nuts. Serve with vinaigrette on the side.
  • Store extra vinaigrette in the refrigerator up to 1 week. Serve on salads or steamed veggies.
