Thinly sliced tomatoes are served with a refreshing granita, tangy balsamic, and creamy burrata with prosciutto on the side. A perfect summer salad.
Heirloom tomatoes are so amazingly sweet, juicy, and succulent; I want allllll the heirloom tomatoes the land has to offer. And, I actually did buy my market out of their entire supply the other day.
While I do love to shovel slices of lightly salted heirlooms into my mouth, on repeat, sometimes I crave something slightly more refined. And, this Heirloom Tomato Carpaccio totally fits that bill. This salad is my playful spin on the beloved Caprese salad.
I gave the traditional Caprese a little upgrade by swapping out the thick slices of tomatoes for thin and delicate slices of heirlooms; mozzarella for super creamy torn burrata; basil leaves for a refreshingly cool basil granita, and plain balsamic vinegar for fig balsamic vinegar. And, because I decided that was simply not enough pizzaz, I added prosciutto in the form of cute little rosettes and thinly sliced red onion. The result is a salad that is sure to blow your mind.
This simple and seasonally salad is the embodiment of everything I love about summer. It’s cool and refreshing, creamy and dreamy, slightly meaty, sweet, salty, savory, a little sour… it’s the jam people.Print
Hi there! My name is Cheyanne. I am an avid foodie, culinary school graduate, recipe developer and newbie blogger. I find peace and joy being in the kitchen and am obsessed with feeding anyone who has an appetite. I am also a lover of food porn. I picked up a camera one day and fell in love with food photography. Then I got a wack-a-me-me idea to start a food blog and the rest is history. No Spoon Necessary is a place where I share my passion for food and photography with all who care to join me. I also rant, ramble on and share my life a little. In a world filled with so many talented food bloggers, I am simply trying to carve my space in www dot com land, take you all with me on the crazy ride and cook 'n eat some delicious food along the way! So, strap on that apron and work some culinary magic with me. Cheers!
