I love using my air fryer in the summer since it saves me from heating my kitchen. If you’re like me and have a ton of tomatoes growing in your garden, this Burrata Caprese Salad is an excellent way to use them. More air fryer recipes I love to make are these Air Fryer Zucchini Sticks and Prosciutto Wrapped Figs with Blue Cheese, and this Whipped Ricotta Toast with Roasted Tomatoes is another great way to use summer tomatoes.

What is tomato caprese?

A classic caprese salad consists of tomatoes and mozzarella drizzled with olive oil and topped with fresh basil, salt, and pepper. I switch things up in this recipe by using cherry tomatoes cooked in the air fryer until juicy and bursting with flavor. I serve them with burrata cheese over arugula to make it more filling and drizzle with balsamic glaze for extra flavor.

What to Serve with Caprese Salad

This burrata caprese salad is perfect for lunch or a light dinner with a hearty piece of bread. You can also serve it with protein such as grilled shrimp, Air Fryer Herbed Buttermilk Chicken Breast or Grilled Lobster Tails.


  • Sub fresh mozzarella for the burrata.
  • Use dairy-free mozzarella (such as Mykonos) for a vegan salad.
  • Swap the arugula for baby greens.
  • Use grape tomatoes instead of cherry.
  • If you don’t have an air fryer, roast the tomatoes and garlic in the oven at 400 degrees for 20-30 minutes.
  • You can make your balsamic glaze at home if you don’t want to buy it. Bring a half cup of balsamic vinegar to a low boil on the stove. Turn down the heat to medium-low and simmer for about 20 minutes until reduced by half and vinegar becomes thick and syrupy.

    We don’t have an air fryer. Any suggestions for an alternative cooking method or should I just use the burst tomatoes as is?

    1. Most recipes here on the blog are not in the cookbooks, but there is a cook book index on the main page. 🙂

  3. This was simple and delicious. Fancy enough for company and easy enough for a weeknight. This will be my go to salad this summer!

  4. So good, I’ve already made it twice! Our grocery store has truffle burrata and the flavor combo is just incredible. Thank you for this recipe!!

  5. This was AMAZING! Such a quick & easy lunch to make yet it felt so decadent.  This is definitely going to be on repeat!

  6. This was amazing. I served it with shredded chicken. I’m going to meal prep it for lunches for the week by using divided containers. Can’t wait!

  7. This was really good! I substituted fresh mozzarella (couldn’t find the other kind) and added some cucumber and diced grilled chicken to make it a meal, and the roasted tomatoes just POPPED with flavor. Thanks!

  8. This was so good! So pretty, too!  I used Trader Joe’s balsamic glaze (it’s a staple in my fridge). I served it with grilled chicken breast. Delicious!
