SUMMER ON A PLATE IN 7 MINUTES OR LESS
I keep skipping out on dinner. Too tired, too late, too hot, etc.
But this, I was looking forward to this all day.
Swoon-worthy farmer’s market Beefsteak tomato slices (yep, not even heirloom, just good ol’ fashioned beefsteak), a ball of beautiful creamy burrata, torn basil, salt, pepper & balsamic vinegar. That is all.
On the side, some bread, which I rubbed with olive oil & garlic and topped it with shredded parmesan before letting it hang out in the broiler for a while. If it looks a little blacked, that was intentional, I wanted it to be good and charred to stand up to all the juicy tomato/cheese/vinegar goodness.
I’m pretty happy right now.
P.S. lest you think you have to spend a lot on fancy ingredients to enjoy such a simple meal, my cheese, bread & vinegar all came from Trader Joe’s and were as reasonably priced as can be.
