Burrata with Tomato, Basil and Salami Salad

  • Burrata with Tomato, Basil and Salami

  • Great salad for any night of the week.
  • 8 ounces crusty sourdough bread
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 8 ounces burrata cheese
  • 4 ounces chopped salami
  • 1 cup grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
  • ⅓ cup olives, any kind you like and feta cheese
  • Basil leaves, handful, torn
  • Sea salt and black pepper
  • Red pepper flakes


  1. Tear the bread up into pieces and arrange them, crusty side down, on a sheet pan. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, making sure to spread the evoo over the soft (fleshy) side of the bread. Broil for a couple of minutes, watching carefully for the bread to gain some color.
  2. Arrange the toasted bread pieces on a large platter. Add in the burrata, salami and tomatoes, and top with the remaining ingredients.
  3. Finish with a good dash of kosher salt and black pepper (particularly on the tomatoes and burrata), and a little red pepper flakes, if you don’t mind the heat. Drizzle olive oil all over and serve.
