Ingredients (Serves 4)

2
large ox heart tomatoes (800g), cored
2
tablespoon
quality olive oil
2
balls of burrata
4
tablespoon
basil pesto
1
unwaxed lemon, zested on a fine grater
1
handful
basil leaves
pinch
salt
pinch
black pepper

Preparation:

  • Cut the tomatoes into thin slices (a serrated knife is best).
  • Arrange on four serving plates, season with salt and drizzle with a little olive oil.
  • Tear the burrata and arrange on top of the tomatoes.
  • Drizzle the pesto over the top. Sprinkle over the lemon zest, season with pepper and garnish with the basil leaves to serve.  

Tip

Instead of ox heart tomatoes, you can any other tomato variety. Heritage varieties are good – just make sure they are ripe.
