6 cups


  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 2 cups baby arugula

  • 4 cups sliced heirloom tomatoes

  • 4 ounces burrata, sliced

  • ½ cup basil chiffonade (see Tip)

  • ¼ teaspoon flaky sea salt, such as Maldon


  1. Whisk oil, vinegar, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Toss arugula with 1 tablespoon of the vinaigrette in a small bowl.

  2. Place the dressed arugula on a platter. Decoratively arrange sliced tomatoes and burrata over the arugula. Sprinkle with basil and flaky salt.


Tip: Chiffonade refers to finely cut herbs or greens. To make basil chiffonade, simply stack several basil leaves and thinly slice through the stack to make fine shreds.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
