8 Burrata Salad Recipes
What's the secret to restaurant-quality salads and appetizers? Try fresh, pillowy burrata cheese. This beloved Italian cheese has an ooey-gooey center made from small cheese curds and cream, all enveloped in a shell of mozzarella. The beauty of a burrata salad is that the cheese is always going to be the star, so you can keep the rest of the salad simple. Fresh ingredients like tomatoes, peaches, arugula, prosciutto, and basil are the perfect pairing for burrata. Looking for recipe inspiration?

Stacked Tomato and Burrata Salad
Chef John says it best: "Comparing mozzarella and burrata is a little unfair, as burrata is significantly richer and creamier. It's not like comparing apples and oranges; it's more like apples and supermodels. In fact, burrata means 'buttered,' which is really all you need to know." Traditionally, caprese salad is made with fresh mozzarella, but using burrata only takes it to new heights.
