Enjoy the season's best tomatoes in a caprese stack!
Prep Time 10 mins
Course Appetizer
Cuisine American, Italian


  • Heirloom tomatoes, room temperature (the ones shown are "Black Beauties")
  • Burrata
  • Basil leaves (or basil vinaigrette, see notes)
  • Salt/Pepper
  • Balsamic glaze (optional)


  • Slice tomatoes, making sure to keep it in the correct order to reassemble.
  • Pat each slice with paper towels to remove some of the moisture. I find that this makes the slices less slippery and easier to stack.
  • Add salt and pepper to the tomatoes. Stack with burrata and basil leaves (or vinaigrette). You can use toothpicks to help it stay upright. Serve immediately. Enjoy!


  1. Instead of a basil leaves, you could also use this basil vinaigrette: https://www.davidlebovitz.com/basil-vinaigrette/
