Tomatoes with Lightly Whipped Cream

tomatoes with lightly whipped cream

To enjoy ripe, juicy tomatoes in a new way, try this ethereal riff on traditional Caprese salad, with unsweetened whipped cream standing in for the mozzarella.


  • ½ cup heavy cream

  • Assorted tomatoes, such as cherry, heirloom, plum, or beefsteak

  • Flaky sea salt

  • Freshly ground pepper

  • Fresh basil leaves

  • Extra-virgin olive oil


  1. Lightly whip cream in a cold bowl until soft peaks form (it'll take about a minute). Cut larger tomatoes into thick slices; halve smaller ones or leave them whole. Arrange them on a platter with dollops of cream and season with flaky salt and pepper. Top with basil and a splash of oil to serve.
