Method

  1. Use a serrated knife to cut the tomatoes into bite-size chunks. Season well with salt and spread them out on a serving platter. Nestle in the burrata then use a knife to split it open to reveal its gooey centre, then season with salt and plenty of freshly ground black pepper. Scatter over the basil leaves, tearing any large ones. Drizzle with the oil and vinegar.
