I love a fresh tomato salad with burrata cheese and homemade balsamic glaze. Is there anything better?My twist on this classic – I add blistered cherry tomatoes on top of sliced field tomatoes. Delicious!

2 large ripe field tomatoes sliced into 1/8th width crosswise
3 cups grape tomatoes
2 tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper
4 oz burrata cheese
Fresh basil chopped
Balsamic glaze
½ cup black balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp maple syrup

  1.  Preheat oven to 450 F.  Line a baking sheet with foil sprayed with vegetable oil.  Place grape tomatoes on sheet and roast for 12 minutes just until blistered.
  2. Place field tomatoes on platter, add roasted grape tomatoes over top.  Place burrata along side.  Drizzle with olive oil and salt and pepper and basil
  3. Balsamic glaze:  Bring vinegar and maple syrup to a boil and simmer for 3 minutes just until thick.  If too thick to pour add a little more  water.  Pour over tomatoes and cheese.
