Instructions

  2. Spread the pine nuts in a single layer, on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake on the middle rack, stirring occasionally for 5-10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove from the pan, and set aside.
  3. Break the tomatoes into pieces with your fingers, and arrange on a serving dish or individual dishes. Place dollops of the pesto and burrata, in between the tomatoes. Pull the burrata apart into chunks, allowing the interior cream to spill out onto the dish(es).

    Do we really need any more cream as a dressing? Burrata is filled with cream...and break the tomatoes with your hands? Sounds like a big squashed mess to me!

    I agree I think heavy / double cream with this would clash and spoil the taste. Maybe a dollop of Creme fraiche if you must but ... and what’s wrong with roughly chopping the tomatoes lol!
