This is an opportunity to showcase fleshy heirloom varieties of different colours. We like to slice them thickly for a meaty texture you can sink your teeth into.


Almond Breadcrumbs



Almond Breadcrumbs

  1. In a skillet over medium-high heat, sauté the garlic in the oil until golden. Remove from the skillet. Add the bread cubes and sauté until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from the heat. Finely chop the garlic and add it to the bread. Let cool.
  2. In a food processor, finely chop the almonds. Add the bread mixture and pulse until it is combined. Transfer to a bowl and add the chives.


  1. Arrange the tomato slices on a platter and sprinkle with fleur de sel. Season with pepper. Tear the burrata into pieces and place on the tomatoes. Garnish with the breadcrumbs. Drizzle with olive oil, if desired.


Burrata is a fresh cheese made from buffalo or cow’s milk that has become more readily available. It looks a lot like fresh mozzarella, but the interior is filled with a creamy mixture of mozzarella and crème fraîche. Fresh mozzarella can be used in its place in this recipe.
