Quinoa and Burrata Caprese Salad
- 2 medium tomatoes , sliced (I like Campari tomatoes unless I have fresh from my garden)
- 1 packaged ball of Burrata cheese
- ½ cup quinoa , cooked
- 5-6 basil leaves , thinly sliced
- 1 ½ tablespoons good and fruity extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
- kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Layer tomato slices in a salad bowl or plate. Remove the Burrata cheese from it's package and drain the water. Gently tear the cheese ball in half, reserving one half for another salad or other use (you should use the drained cheese within a day after draining.) Add the quinoa and basil leaves and drizzle with the olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Season with the kosher salt and freshly ground pepper and serve.
It looks so delicious. I got your recipe and I will try to make this dish. I love it.

This looks that good, quite a response from long time.
I know this is not timely or anything, as this post is from nearly 2 years ago, but the link for the favorite whole food blogs now goes to a website selling e-cigarettes. Which is essentially the exact opposite. Don’t know how that happened but just wanted to give you a heads up! :)
I usually do not leave a response, but after looking at a ton of responses

Blogs | foodiecrush. I do have some questions for you if you do not mind.
Is it only me or does it look as if like some of these comments look like they are written by brain dead people?
:-P And, if you are posting at other places,
I would like to follow everything new you have to post.
Would you list of the complete urls of your shared pages

Here you go with that burrata again! This looks fantastic. I fell in love with quinoa a few years ago and have actually replaced it for rice in my house. We now eat it a few times a week. I love the nuttiness it adds to any meal.
Jamie @ green beans & grapefruit
This looks insanely good…again I’m in awe of your photo skills. You picked excellent whole foods blogs too- love each and every one of those.
I love quinoa! I will definitely make this!

Only you could make a quinoa salad this gorgeous!
Sylvie @ Gourmande in the Kitchen
Burrata is the best, especially with fresh ripe tomatoes!
Rachael (Fuji Mama)
Such a fantastic list. I love lists like this, as there is always at least one that is new to me! And quinoa? Be still my heart. I’m so glad that it is taking such firm roots here!

This salad looks like heaven, especially when you add creamy buratta!
Gerry @ Foodness Gracious
Such an awesome grain to work with, and topping it with a squidgy (sp?) dollop of burrata is fantastic!
minimalist baker is my FAVORITE whole foods blog! I’ve made tons of her recipes and love every single one of them!

What a pretty and fresh-looking salad! So nice when there’s just a handful of ingredients…
Great post and beautiful recipe. One of the very best food blogs is http://www.momskitchenhandbook.com/.

I love me some quinoa, but burrata is a new-to-me ingredient that I’ve had fun experimenting with lately (I mean, it’s cheese, so I like it). I have one ball of burrata left and it has this recipe’s name all over it! So excited for juicy red tomatoes to be making an appearance, too. And thank you, Heidi, for including me in your list of whole food blogs along with such great company. Your summary made me smile. xo.
Wow, what a salad. I am all over this one.
Bev @ Bev Cooks
Gawgeous salad and a PERFECT list of whole food bloggers!
Meagan @ A Zesty Bite
I still need to try out buratta. These salad looks delicious.
I like this family whole food blog called http://insockmonkeyslippers.com She gives tips on alternatives for dyes sugars and such and has great recipes that I always use. Btw, agave syrup is not a whole food. It’s boiled down and is exactly like corn syrup. Love your site!
please ignore my typo/bad grammar ;)
In addition to flood bloggers making Quinoa accessible with yummy looking recipes such as the one above, I think there are two more reason for it’s popularity – increased gluten intolerance or people avoiding gluten and the ease of use – compared to other healthy and whole foods you don’t have to soak overnight or prepare it in a complicated fashion – it’s quick, fast and healthy and you can use it savoury or sweet.

What a perfect summer salad!

WOW this looks amazing. I love a caprese burrata salad and I love quinoa, so it’s a pretty perfect combo. A match made in heaven.
Looking forward to making this.
I’m completely obsessed with quinoa. Loving this recipe. And your list of blogs is fantastic.
