Heirloom Tomato Burrata Salad with Warm Marinated Olives

To keep things simple, I like to buy an olive blend in oil with herbs, such as the one linked in the article above. Olive bars are also becoming increasingly popular in grocery stores. If neither is an option, simply heat olives in olive oil with a handful of your favorite herbs + garlic.

Heat a small skillet over low heat. Heat olives until warmed throughout, shaking pan periodically, about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, combine olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, shallot, sugar, and S&P.
