Burrata salad

Burrata is a soft Italian cheese that is filled with strands of mozzarella and cream. When the cheese is cut open, the creamy filling spills out and mixes with the other ingredients in the salad. The tomatoes give the salad a fresh and tangy taste, while the capers provide saltiness and acidity that is balanced by the salty and crispy prosciutto. The croutons provide a crunch, and together with fresh herbs like basil and thyme, it creates a delightful taste experience.

This salad is easy to make and can be varied with different types of vegetables and herbs depending on the season. You can also add other ingredients like avocado, olives, or red onion to give the salad more flavor and texture. For a vegetarian version, you can easily omit the prosciutto and replace it with grilled halloumi or marinated mushrooms.

This burrata salad is perfect for lunch or as an appetizer to share with friends and family. Serve it with a cold drink and enjoy the flavors and aromas of the Mediterranean. Try this simple and hearty salad and experience a delightful taste that is guaranteed to become a favorite.
