Summer is finally on its way-which calls for a Burrata Salad with Asparagus!
But as spring is already here, I do love to eat more salads for dinner. Have you ever heard of Burrata? If you are not 100% sure, and you got a spot at your favourite quiz show, there you go:
Burrata (Italian pronunciation: [burˈrata]) is an Italian cow milk cheese (occasionally buffalo milk) made from mozzarella and cream.
It is super dense on the outside and soft, nearly like cream, on the inside. Burrata is also great to use as a substitute for Mozzarella cheese on Pizza or classic Caprese salad.
Serve with some fresh baguette or maybe some homemade sandwich bread? You will feel like summer is already here-even when it’s a rainy one!
My drinks recommendation for the Burrata Salad:
Have an Aperol Sprizz with it, and you will feel like on vacation in Italy 🙂

- 5 minutes
- 20 minutes
|fresh salad leaves|
|4||Tbsp Olive oil|
|2||Tbsp Balsamic vinegar|
|Salt and pepper|
|1||Handful fresh basil leaves|
Steps of preparation
- Cut the Asparagus ends of and slice the asparagus into bite size pieces.
- Wash and drain the salad and tomatoes.
- Cut the tomatoes in half. Slice the salad (or tear it apart like I do)
- Bring a pan to high heat and add 1 Tbsp of olive oil. Add the asparagus and season with salt and pepper.
- In the meantime, place in a bowl the salad, the Burrata and the cut tomatoes.
- Season with salt and freshly ground pepper. Add the remaining olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
- Check if the asparagus is cooked-roughly it takes around 5-8 mins, depending on the thickness of the asparagus. It should still have some “bite”
- Place asparagus in the bowl and top with some fresh basil leaves and enjoy!
