|Heirloom Tomato and Basil Marinated Burrata|
For this simple dish, I spiced it up just a wee-bit by toasting some fennel seed and then crushing it, to add to the marinade. I chopped some baby heirloom tomato's, minced some garlic, and chiffonaded some fresh basil. Tossed all that in a bowl with a light coating of extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper, and let marinade for a bit. Gently cracked open the fresh burrata cheese and laid it out onto a plate. Then drizzled the tomato basil mixture onto the burrata, and sprinkled with fresh cracked pepper and lemon zest, and let that sit for about 30 minutes.
Slice up a french baguette, pour a glass of vino, press play on the remote, and... Cheers!
