For the garlic toasts:

  • 1 loaf rustic bread
  • Olive oil
  • 2 peeled garlic cloves

For the burrata:

  • 16 oz grape
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • 8 ounces burrata
  • 3 tablespoons basil pesto
  • Fresh basil


  • Set the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Slice the bread into 1-inch-thick pieces with a bread knife. On a sizable baking sheet, arrange the bread slices in a single layer and drizzle with olive oil on both sides. Toast the bread for 10 minutes, turning it over halfway through, or until golden brown on both sides. To impart garlic flavor, take the bread out of the oven and rub the garlic cloves all over the toast.
  • Place the tomatoes in a small bowl and drizzle with olive oil while the bread is toasting. To taste, add salt and pepper to the dish.
  • Place the burrata on a platter or serving dish when you’re ready to serve. The burrata should be surrounded by tomatoes. Add salt and pepper to taste and drizzle pesto over the tomatoes and burrata. Basil should be used to garnish the tomatoes. Slices of bread should be arranged around the cheese and tomatoes before serving.
