Burrata Salad Recipe
A Salad to Impress – Takes Less Than Five Minutes to Make!
What is Burrata?
Burrata is an Italian cheese made from mozzarella and cream. It comes in the form of a ball, in a plastic container submerged in liquid. It has a solid outer shell and soft creamy texture inside.
I love this fresh cheese! It has a light flavour that easily blends and adds texture to ingredients with a punch such as, tomatoes, balsamic vinegar, and basil. One of my favourite Sardinian restaurants in Paris, Amici Miei, offers a fantastic burrata salad. They serve it on top of Carasatu bread, a traditional flatbread from Sardinia, thin and crisp. This burrata salad is very easy to make, fresh, flavourful, and light. I eat it at least once a week.

5 Basil leaves
2 tbsp. Extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp. Reduced balsamic vinegar
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
½ tsp. Chilli flakes
- Dress a plate with green salad.

- Break burrata with your hand and distribute it on top of the salad.

If you have carasatu bread, it is a perfect combination.
