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.


Serves: 2 | Preparation time: Less than 5 minutes

100 gr. Burrata per Person

1 Handful of cherry tomatoes per person

Mixed green salad including rocket to add a peppery twist

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


  1. Dress a plate with green salad.
  2. Rinse tomatoes, cut in half, and place in a bowl.
  3. Season with salt, pepper, and chilli flakes. Add extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Mix well.
  4. Break burrata with your hand and distribute it on top of the salad.
  5. Add tomato mix on top of burrata.
  6. If needed you may add a bit more olive oil.
  7. Decorate with basil leaves torn with your hands.

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