Burrata Salad with Tomato Crumbs - IHCC Bread Ahead


With layers of salty prosciutto, creamy burrata cheese, sweet and tangy roasted tomatoes, and a topping of crisp, cheesy breadcrumbs, this has to be my favourite Nigel Slater recipe.....and I've made many while cooking with I Heart Cooking Clubs with Nigel as featured chef and long before that!

And it's so easy to put together:
Arrange prosciutto on individual serving plates, top with burrata, basil, and parsley, and drizzle with olive oil.
Toss garden fresh tomatoes with basil and roast them with a scattering of fresh breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese.
Add the tomato crumbs hot from the oven to each plate and enjoy!

The recipe for Mozzarella Salad with Tomato Crumbs is from the Kitchen Diaries 2 but can also be found here. Be sure to stop by IHCC to see what other dishes featuring bread members have made.
