INGREDIENTS

  • 4 oz. Fresh Burrata Cheese
  • 1/2 cup Heirloom Grape and Pearl Tomatoes, cut in half
  • Salt
  • 1/2 tbsp. Naturel Agave
  • Olive Oil
  • Balsamic Glaze (chef’s preference)
  • Fresh Basil Leaves to garnish

METHOD

  1. Cut the tomatoes in half and toss with natural agave and a pinch of salt to bring out the natural sweetness of the tomato fruit.
  2. Next, plate the tomatoes and delicately place buratta cheese on top.
  3. Drizzle with olive oil, salt and a bit more Naturel Agave. Finish with fresh basil leaves as a garnish.

Chef’s Note: The best sugar substitute on fresh berries is Naturel Agave and a dash of sea salt to bring out the natural sweetness of the fruit without a heavy sugary aftertaste.
