It’s A Burrata Kind of Night

It’s A Burrata Kind of Night

I’ll admit I haven’t quite been able to let go of summer yet. We still have the BBQ going and when we are grilling I like to have a big, beautiful salad on the side.

One of my favourites, is mixed baby greens topped with prosciutto, blackberries, marcona almonds and a healthy portion of decadent burrata.

With this type of salad featuring all these wonderful flavours, I simply dress it with a good quality olive oil, some balsamic vinegar, fresh ground pepper and salt.

Lately I’ve been using smoked maldon salt and it works really well in this recipe.

You could substitute blueberries or raspberries and any other nuts you fancy.

This is a very easy salad to whip together on a weeknight or for friends on the weekend.
