This recipe could not be easier to make, where it's primarily assembly and presentation of the dish. The key is to make it look as pretty as possible, which is naturally beautiful because of the color of your heirloom tomatoes.
Prepare the tomato marinade first, by combining all ingredients in a blender, adding oil last to emulsify.
For the tomato salad, slice tomatoes and place on paper towels so the excess liquid drains. Lightly season the tomatoes with fleur du sel. After 10 minutes, marinate tomatoes for 5 minutes with the tomato marinade.
Build the salad with the burrata down first split into 3 sections, then arrange the tomatoes on top, followed by the herbs, the extra virgin olive oil and seasoning. May be prepared up to 2 hours prior.
Tip: Tomatoes should not be refrigerated to retain their natural intense flavor.
