Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves packed + more for garnish
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves packed + more for garnish
  • dash of salt
  • 8 oz burrata cheese
  • 2 medium plums (or 4 small ones) cut into bite size pieces
  • 3 large heirloom tomatoes (or 15 cherry tomatoes) cut into bite size pieces
  • dash of pink peppercorn
  • toasted bread or crackers for serving

Instructions

  1. Bring a small pot of water to a boil and prepare an ice bath. Blanch the basil and mint by dropping it into the boiling water for one minute and then immediately transferring herbs to the ice bath for another minute.

  2. Remove mint and basil from the water and pat dry with a clean kitchen towel or a few paper towels. Transfer to food processor or blender and add olive oil and a dash of salt. Pulse or blend for 30 seconds or until the herbs are finely chopped. Let sit for at least five minutes before straining the oil into a small dish.

  3. Plate the burrata on a serving tray and assemble the plums and tomatoes around it. Garnish with more herbs and drizzle with the basil-mint oil. Finish with pink peppercorn and serve with toasted bread pieces or crackers.
