I am so excited that the weather is starting to change! The days are getting longer and the sun is beating down with just a little more warmth.

Every time the weather starts to turn, my focus on food starts to do the same. I crave simple, clean ingredients that make the most fantastic dishes. And it doesn't get more simple than this! Creamy and silky burrata with fresh basil leaves and sliced tomatoes. I used plum tomatoes here but you can honestly use whatever tomato is looking fresh and rips at the store that week.

I always have a bottle of balsamic glaze on hand to add just a slight tangy sweetness to dishes just like this one. If you don't have a bottle of balsamic glaze on hand, you can always make it by adding a 1/2 cup of balsamic vinegar to a small non-stick pan and over medium heat and let it reduce 3/4 of the way. It will create a thick syrup that is just perfect to add this dish, or any salad or fish dish!

This is a perfect appetizer or a simple lunch of dinner.
