Plate of slow-roasted cherry tomatoes and burrata.

Quite possibly my favorite way to use slow-roasted cherry tomatoes, this roasted tomato and burrata salad is not so much a recipe – it’s incredibly simple – but rather a suggestion. Simply tear a few burrata balls in half and place them on a platter surrounded by the roasted cherry tomatoes and their juices. Next, drizzle the burrata with a little extra-virgin olive oil and sprinkle with flaky sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Finally, chop some fresh basil and scatter it over the salad. Serve the salad for lunch or a light supper, and don’t forget the crusty bread to sop up the delicious sauce.

  • I rarely comment on recipes but this one will be an exception. I honestly cannot count how many times I’ve made this (with the bounty of cherry tomatoes from our garden). It is so easy to make, and so flavourful, and the tomatoes freeze well so you can put it together in minutes. The smell in the kitchen while the tomatoes roast….divine! Make this. You won’t regret it.

  • This was so simple, yet fantastic. I’ve used it for apps with crostini, side with burrata, and even over fish and chicken( just added a little more balsamic).
    You always make things with stuff you have around the house and can elevate any recipe. Thanks for all of the inspiration.

  • This. Was. Unreal. You know how sometimes you see a recipe and just know it’s going to curl your toes? That’s how I felt. Not even a huge tomato lover but ANYTHING roasted is superb. The basic ingredients just screamed fresh and simple but it was better than I could have imagined. Luscious. Fresh mozzarella always kills my stomach so I’m going to pay for this in about T-minus 20 minutes but it was sooooo worth it. And I’ll do it again!

  • This was fabulous! Not only the flavor, but slow roasting vs roasting at 400 degrees-no oil all over the oven. Served with crostini-Another winner!

  • Jenn, what is your favorite supermarket burrata? I’ve tried many, and so far, only Trader Joe’s has that dairy-forward taste and the right texture inside and out. So many just taste like gooey mozzarella
