Heirloom Tomato, Avocado & Burrata Tartines

Summer means big, juicy, colorful heirloom tomatoes. Their flavor more than justifies their more expensive price tag. The slices of tomato pair perfectly with creamy burrata, slices of avocado, grilled bread, and watercress for a fresh summer appetizer. Of course if you’re like me and you hate dealing with summer heat you could always make it into a quick and easy dinner! 



3 medium heirloom tomatoes, thinly sliced 

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 

Kosher salt, as needed 

Freshly ground black pepper, as needed 

4 slices sourdough bread, cut ½” thick

4 ounces burrata 

1 medium Haas avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced 

Handful watercress leaves 



Drizzle the tomato slices with olive oil then season with salt and pepper. Let sit for about 10 minutes. 

Heat a large griddle or grill over medium-high heat. Add the slices of bread and cook until grill marks appear, about 1 minute. Flip and cook for an additional minute.

Top each slice with burrata followed by avocado, tomato slices and watercress. Slice each toast in half. 


Serves 4.
