Every now and then, a meal we eat out gets lodged in my head. So caught up and inspired by the flavors, I just can't stop thinking about it. Eventually, if I have my act together, I try to get around to recreating it at home. This Roasted Tomato Salad with Burrata Cheese is just one of those meals.
A couple of Saturdays ago, after a busy day in the salon, Chris and I decided to go to our local cheese shop, The Fox and Crow, here in Fort Collins.
I had been there before with a friend for a cheese platter and wine. It was delicious -- they curate the boards especially for you, based off of the types of cheeses they have in stock that best fit into your taste buds and serve them alongside all the best pairing treats. It was so delicious that Chris and I ordered another one.

Along with our wine at the dinner hour, however, we wanted to "flesh" our meal out with some more veggies and balance, so we ordered their roasted tomato and burrata salad.
The flavors were memorable: crisp salad, creamy burrata, succulent roasted tomatoes, balsamic reduction, and what seemed like honey with olive oil. Suddenly, the cheese board had some competition for our attention & taste buds.
Given this experience, I still think about this salad. So much so, that when I saw some beautiful cherry tomatoes at the Fort Collins Farmer's Market the other day, I decided to try my hand at my own version.
After a quick and hot roast in the oven, I tossed the tomatoes on some farm fresh greens (also from the market), sliced open a ball of burrata, and drizzled the whole show with my favorite Miso Maple Vinaigrette.
What resulted is a new favorite for our menu (and I hope your's, too!). Whether I serve it with a cheeseboard, solo, or with some sourdough bread and a glass of white wine, the creamy, tangy, and sweet jammy flavors are ones I just can't -- and don't think I'll ever -- tire of.
This roasted tomato salad is...
It's everything I want in an end-of-summer salad. I hope it's all that you want, too.

How to roast cherry tomatoes:
It's pretty simple to roast cherry tomatoes, thankfully. Just preheat your oven to 425 degrees and oil a small cooking sheet with about a tablespoon of olive oil. Add the rinsed cherry tomatoes, ¼ teaspoon salt, and a few fresh cracks of pepper to the oil and toss the tomatoes until they're evenly covered with the oil and seasonings.
Then roast for 20-22 minutes, or until the tomatoes have blistered and popped are a nice deep red color.
