Burrata, Strawberry, and Basil Salad


Not only is this “salad” gorgeous, it’s delicious and fun to eat. I love cutting into Burrata cheese and having its filling combine with the sweet strawberries, crunchy walnuts, fresh basil and savory balsamic syrup. It’s a winning combination that’s wonderful to scoop onto pieces of artisanal bread and/or crisp crackers. http://mixedgreensblog.com

Size: 4 servings

1 8 oz ball fresh Burrata cheese (found in most grocery stores... also Fairway... Whole Foods)
1 7-8 oz container fresh strawberries, hulled, halved or quartered, if large
2 tbsp small fresh basil leaves
2 tbsp coarsely chopped toasted walnuts
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
Fine sea salt
2 tbsp balsamic syrup
Crackers or bread pieces (serve alongside)


Place Burrata in center of plate. Scatter strawberries, then basil leaves and walnuts around cheese. Drizzle oil over. Sprinkle sea salt and freshly ground black pepper over, Drizzle syrup* over.

*Balsamic syrup can be found at some supermarkets and specialty food stores. If unavailable, simmer 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar in a small saucepan until reduced to 2 tablespoons, about 5 minutes. Cool.
